Need to create 4+ Custom Fields checklists with about 50 options in each field

I have about 200-250 or so checklist options divided up into 4 or 5 categories that I want to create custom "Checklist for Jira" fields, but it seems the only way I can add the options is by cut-n-pasting a single line-at-a-time option in the custom field creation process.

Are there ANY other ways??

I'd gladly edit a Jira XML custom field configuration file, or write a Jira CLI script, or even a groovy script.

Hi Richard,

Sorry for the late reply. We don't get notifications anymore.

Unfortunately, this is how options are implemented in JIRA. I have not used it but I know there's a free add-on to deal with options via a REST API ... not sure it's applicable. 

Otherwise, maybe a groovy script where you add options via the OptionManager API.

Thanks, I'll take a look.
