JIRA Project(s) dynamic multi-select custom field

I have 150+ JIRA projects and building 5+ new one's a week on average. We have gone from 1300 users to 2700+ in the last 6-7 months and adding almost 100 new users a week on average. In our admin request project we have a Permission Request issue type. This is mostly for contractors who don't get on-boarded properly and aren't added to the proper DL in active directory/LDAP. Anyway I had created a multi-select custom field and added all of the projects we had at that time. It's tedious to keep this up to date. Is there anyway to populate the list with a simple JQL query? Any help would be appreciated!

You can populate your (projects) list with REST API call, https://docs.atlassian.com/jira/REST/latest/#d2e4611
