Yes, you can code to add options, but you have to run the process as an administrator, or code something that bypasses security.
"Edit custom field options" is possible in the UI, it's pointless having another editor plugin, it would be duplicating functions you've already got.
Also, before you try this, *think*. I've removed plugins that do this sort of thing from three sites recently, because they've let the users add thousands of duplicated, pointless and misunderstood options. Then I've had to spend ages cleaning up the mess they made.
Automation that allows user to do dumb things is BAD. Filtering it through a human admin is usually best practice for select list options.
Thank you for comment.
Could you tell me how have done it. I am not going to allow every user to do that. There would be a separate issue type that will allow some very specific users to do it.
Doing from UI is a manual operation. I want to automate that stuff.
Could you share with me peice of code; how have you done it. i really need to do it.
Nic is absolutely right, if you want to items in select list anyhow you should go through below link
Before you proceed same as above, you should learn below discussion I faced working for the same you asked.
although this question is already answered, Customfield Editor add-on helps you to resolve this. You can define which custom fields and who can edit the values. It also offers their own REST API and fields can be updated by scripts (used by our internal systems integrated with Jira).
