I have a multi select custom field which consists of a lot of options (50+), i would like to attach a property/attribute to each option, property value would be (1,2,3,4) i'll be using this to calculate/query something. Is this possible?
Or do we have a facility in Jira to make a mapping table and feed this table to a multi select custom field?
No, there's nothing in Jira to store the arbitrary data you want to attach to the options.
You'll need to do some coding - either hacking the existing code to add the functions to store and use this property data or take a look at using "active objects" in a plugin (a plugin is neater than mucking around with core code). The active objects approach is quite close to what I think you're thinking of when you say "mapping table"
