This document will give you more details on how to work with Custom Fields in Jira.
- Go to Administration > Issues > Custom Fields;
- Create a Custom Field of type "Select List (multiple choices)".
- Click on the 'cog' icon on the right side of the newly-created custom field and click Edit;
Add the below code to the Description field and click Update;
<cf-id>with the ID of the custom field you're modifying. You can get this information by running the below query on Jira's database. For example, if the ID is 10100, you'll have to change
SELECT id FROM customfield WHERE cfname = '<cf-name>';
<cf-name>with the name of the custom field you're modifying.
