Associating a number value to a data field.

I need to associate a number to a list or text option; so that I can calculate the selected choices. Example I want to list a number of choices and each choice will have a numerical rating from 1 - 5. I want to use the numbers for calculations.

Select type options in Jira are lists of options, there's no hidden values behind them for you to set.

I suspect your only option here is to literally have 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 as options and then have your calculation code start with something like "value = parseInt (getCustomFieldValue(cf).getValue() )"
