How to add options in batch to a custom field?

I have close to a thousand options I want to add to a custom field. Can I add them in a batch instead of adding one by one? I am using Jira on-demand - I guess I cannot use script runner plugin?

If you were not using OnDemand, I'd point at a list of possible options:

Jelly (I don't think you can run this in OnDemand?)

The script runner (No, you can't install this in OnDemand)

CSV import (list of issues with the new values for the field and "add custom field on import" - don't know if that's possible in OnDemand)

Otherwise, I think you might be stuck with "typing them in". I'd say a select list with 1000 options sounds a little unwieldy - are you sure that's the right approach?

For script runner - https://jamieechlin.atlassian.net/wiki/display/GRV/Built-In+Scripts#Built-InScripts-BulkImportCustomFieldValues

For ondemand I'd use wget/curl, but agree with Nic re 1000 options.

field engineers reporting from a 1000 customer sites - and with auto-suggest its not really unwieldy.
