1. Log in as an admin and go to Admin -> Issues -> Custom fields, find your field and click "configure" next to it.  Select list type fields will present you with the current list of options and you can add/edit/delete the options 

2. Cloud works the same for company-managed projects.  Server doesn't have team-managed projects, so you don't need to think about the fields people have added individually there.

Hi @Nic Brough _Adaptavist_ , thanks for your response. Actually even my first question was for the rest api  steps required to achieve point 1. Sorry for not clarifying that. 
So do you happen to have any rest api solution to update custom field options? I saw solutions available for cloud platform but did not find anything similar for enterprise server platform. 
Appreciate your help! 

Not for Server - the REST API doesn't have the admin functions you need yet.

You'll need an app that can provide REST endpoints to do that work, or even replace whatever you're doing externally completely.
