I think, you could take a look at the built-in script to add values to custom fields, to see how you can add options to custom fields. The OptionsManager is the interesting point.

But you have to be aware that you shouldn't delete Options which where in use (if this is possible at all). You can delete unused options and deactivate used options if they should not be available anymore. So you have to implement some kind of "sync" between your file and the available options...

Hi Henning,

i am not finding reference code anywhere for bulk import custom field value function anywhere{which can help me save some time}.

Can you please share the code, so that it can help me in writing a new one ?

Thanks and regards,

Sumit

If you go to the script runner builtin scripts page, select the script "Bulk import custom field values" there is a link "View source". In the doScript method is a part where new options are created, see optionsManager.createOption() or https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/44051/how-do-i-add-options-to-a-select-list-custom-field-programatically

Thanks a lot ... I think this will help.

for example ... say I have read a , b, c, d, e & f from the file and I want to create these as option in the select list.

Thanks,

Sumit

This is not related to what I am looking for.

Thanks,

Sumit
