I found this request to have it added, JSWCLOUD-20510, go and add your vote if you would like to see this implemented in the future.

Hi Mikael,


What I am trying to do and i imagine not being the only customer that needs this is to have a field in jira that says which customers have asked for a certain feature request. We use salesforce so we could import all customers name to a certain field but i do not know what field to use. this is a similar usecase: 

What is the best way to implement this in jira currently? Is there a plugin that will allow you to do this?

You want to check out Connector for Salesforce & Jira, we use that integration and is available for both Classic and Next-gen projects. It allows you to associate SFDC objects to issues. 

thank you, i will check that

@SpringServe Support Have you tried to use the Checkbox field as an alternative? Keen to hear any limitations of this from you.

The problem I found in using this solution is when you have many options.  Each option shows on the issue screen, which will make the screen very long and require scrolling.
