JIRA Cloud - update a custom select list via the api

I would like to update the selection options in a custom field in our JIRA cloud instance on a scheduled basis (daily/weekly).  Basically I'm envisioning running a script from an external source and generating a list of new/updated values and importing them into an existing custom fieldin JIRA.

Does anyone know of a way to do this in the JIRA Cloud version?   I've looked at the Developer documentation for the REST API and it appears that you can do this for api/2/customFieldOption but that only seems to get a list of existing options.  api/2/field/{fieldKey}/option does not seem ot support Custom field or System fields.  

I also looked on the Atlassian Market Place and there seem to be some add-ons for the Server version and two unsupported add-ons that have not been downloaded or reviewed.

Anyone doing this in the Cloud and if so how?

Thanks in advance!
