How to set a custom field date (post function)


So I want to set the custom field date to a certain time after the created date, depending on the condition. For example, if i choose "1 week" from the dropdown list, my "end date" custom field should be set to the date after issue's created date. I cant figure out what the problem is. Can you please help me? Thanks.  Here is a part of my code: 

def createdDate = issue.getCreated()
def whenShouldRestoreCF = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject("11335")
def endDateCF = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject("11334")

if(whenShouldRestoreCF == "1 week"){
endDateCF = cal.toMonthDay()

if(whenShouldRestoreCF == "2 week"){
endDateCF = cal.toMonthDay()

if(whenShouldRestoreCF == "3 week"){
endDateCF = cal.toMonthDay()

Your script is not actually trying to set the field, and I don't think your "if" statements are right.

For setting custom fields, is my go-to reference, you'll be able to see how to set your value from that.

The if statement problem I see is that whenShouldRestoreCF will contain an option, not a string, if the field is a select list.  If it is, I would try:

if( "1 week".equals(whenShouldRestoreCF.getName() ) ){
