Don't do that. Create an issue and attach that JavaScript and use the path of that script in your custom field. This will make sure that it survives upgrades.

If I understand you, you want that I create a new issue with the unique purpose of upload a attached script, after updates jira will maintain the uploaded files directory, so this scripts will continue working, is this ok?
