Populating a DBCF field from CSV

Is there any way to populate a custom field of type select using a CSV?

Basically what I have is an excel file (which can be easily converted to CSV or something similar) from which I want to populate a Select list. Based on the value selected, I want to populate 2 other fields (read only). The DBCF Field gets me very close to this. But instead of having to query a database can I look up values from a CSV file available on the Jira server?

Take a look at this page, which describes how to retrieve data from CSV files using Database Custom Field and the text tables feature of hsqldb:


Kind Regards,


Hello Salman,

At the moment a database custom fied can be populated only from a database. The workaround would be to import your file into a database table and use that database to configure the database custom field.
