cascading select field options change - how to?

Hi Everyone,

we have a JIRA v4.1.2 and have a cascading select field with more than 200 options. Now the customers want to change 100+ of the options. In this JIRA we can not change the option text. The only solution is to add the new ones and then change the custom field by bulk change. It would be extremely cumbersome..

Is there a jelly script we could do it with?

You need to upgrade Jira, then you'll be able to simply edit the options.

There's no way to do an edit/change in Jelly or any other way better than bulk-edit.  The data in older JIRA installs is kept in plain text - you have absolutely no option but to update every issue with new data.  In newer JIRA installs, it's by key-label pair, so you don't need to touch the issues, just change the label.
