Update custom fields value


I have migrated JIRA from 6.2 to the 7.3 version. I was using Jelly Services to update the values in my custom fields every 60 minutes from another DB.

I'm looking for a solution to replace those jelly services with another service but I don't find anything.

My goal is to have a script that will run every 60min and will pick up informations from my DB with SQL and add changes in my custom field directly in JIRA, without creating a new custom field.

Thank you in advance for your help.

If you still need to do the update every 60min:

Thank you for your answer ! 

Yes I've tried databasecf add-on but I have to create new custom fields and I have to use absolutely the existing custom fields. 

I have Script runner add-on but I don't know how to translate the Jelly script code in groovy.

For example I have that jelly code:

(I'm totaly lost with the atlassian classes and methods)

<sql:query var="valuesToAdd">
<!--My select SQL Query-->

<!--options activées mais n'existant pas dans la table de référence-->
<sql:query var="idOptionsToDisable">
<!--My select SQL Query-->

<!--options désactivées mais existantes dans la table de référence-->
<sql:query var="idOptionsToEnable">
<!--My select SQL Query-->
