I have a customfield in which I want a list of potential build numbers i.e. 1 to 5000 I dont fancy doing this by hand for all our projects which will have the same filed.
1. Whats the best way to populate the field? Can I do it from a file? I couldnt seem to see anything in JCLI which might help but I may have missed the obvious.
2. Can you sort dropdowns e.g. most recent version is at the top
It's also pretty straightforward to do it with curl, or script your browser using webdriver. Well, straightforward if you've done it before.

JIRA remote APIs don't support it yet and that is why CLI doesn't support it.
The best way might be to write a small servlet which programmatically add the options.
The easiest waut might be to add it in the database directly (customfieldoption table) as long as you know what you are doing. You will have to take JIRA offline, reindex once back up etc.
