programatically create field values

In JIRA, Is it possible to programatically read values from some source, do some logic, and update a custom dropdown field? Can this be done via a plugin, or REST? Thanks.

You can do this by adding new function with plugin SDK.

Plugin SDK comes with various environment, including Windows, Mac, and Linux.

I got the same requirment to popup values in cascading custom field, because of an emergency to deploy I didn't got the chance to develop the code for it, I directly execute the more than tousands of query in DB directly and restarted the JIRA.


insert into customfieldoption(id,customfield,customfieldconfig,parentoptionid,sequence,customvalue,disabled)values(10713,10300,10400,10300,1,'XXX','N')

// Analyse dependencies as well for primary keys,

WORKS fine.
