using Jelly and SelectLists

What is the best way to import data into a SelectList using Jelly

For example we have build Numbers that could be in a selectlist. But Jelly seems to reference the items in the combobox/listbox by their IDs and not by their names. For example: Build number 7999 is referenced as “19209” and not just by 7999. Thus importing is a nightmare. is there a better way? Am I missing something?

Thanks for any help you can give

Thus importing is a nightmare

Only a nightmare because you did not follow the API and use IDs.

is there a better way

You could always create your own way to map the values to the IDs. I sure Jelly does not do that for you. But if you mean by methods other than Jelly, there's REST and SOAP.
