How to read the selected values of a multi-select custom field using behaviour in jira


I have two custom fields : deferred (multi-select) and Target release (single list)

Need to write a script where value of 'deferred' field (all values of multi-select) should be less than the field value 'Target Release'

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Hi @Mamta Verma

def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
def fieldObj = customFieldManager().getCustomFieldObjectByName("FieldName")
def value_field = issue.getCustomFieldValue(fieldObj)

value_field should be a List of strings for normal select or a list of Versions for a field like Fix Versions.
