Thanks Alexey,

How will the issues with existing option values will be updated if I use updateOptions(Collection<Option> options)

Do i need to perform a re-index or this should be automatically done ?

Thanks,

Sumit

The options themselves will be updated instantly. As for the cached index - you should reindex jira to get the new options in search results. (but inside the issues actial values will link to the new option value)

Hi Alexey,

Will you be able to help me write a script for it? I am new to scripting and wouldn't know where to begin... Sorry sad

Need to rename  about 200 values in a given custom field

I used

optionsManager.setValue(Option, "<New Value>")

and it works as expected.

Thanks a ton ..!!

Regards,

Sumit
