Show/Hide field does not work when multiple options are selected

Good morning,

I have a behavior that uses the value of a multi-select drop down field to show another text field when selected, however; when any other value in the multi-select field is also selected, the behavior does not work.   

Any ideas on what I can do to correct this?

def accessPoints = getFieldByName("Access Points")
def optionsManager = ComponentAccessor.getOptionsManager()
def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
def accessPointsField = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject(accessPoints.getFieldId())
def accessPointsConfig = accessPointsField.getRelevantConfig(getIssueContext())
def accessPointsOptions = optionsManager.getOptions(accessPointsConfig)
def other = getFieldByName("Other, explanation required access")

if (accessPoints.value == "Other (add detail to access request explanation)") {
} else {

I'm sure it is something simple. I just can't seem to figure it out.

accessPoints.value.contains("Other (add detail to access request explanation)") 

Try this.

It did not like that option:other error.png

You can ignore that error.

Groovy is a dynamic language, which means all method and property names are looked up when your code is run, not when it’s compiled, unlike Java. Because of this, the static type checker is not always correct. It is a best-efforts attempt to let you know if there are problems with your code.

Thank you both for the assist! This is working as expected now.
