You'll need to code to do that.  Do you have any scripting add-ons installed,or do you prefer to write your own add-on?

using script runner ... i just know how to connect with an external database ... but i must get the custom field value and inject it in the sql requet 
so how can i do it ?

You should be able to use the following to fetch a custom field value ( as a simple string you can drop into the SQL as needed)

def theValue = issue.getCustomFieldValue( customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName( "Field name" ) );
