Updating radio button field on JIRA using Python

I am trying to update radio button fields in JIRA using python logic by building a dictionary. After I built the dictionary, when I try to create issue in JIRA, I am getting an error message -


'customfield_10543': "Option id 'null' is not valid"}

 Python logic:


options = ['10461','10462']
new_issues = []
new_issue = {
                    'project': {"key":"Test"},
                    'summary': 'Test Summary',
                    'description': 'Test issue by Jira Integration'

if df.having_pet.iloc[i] == 'YES':
   new_issue[having_pet] = {'value':options[0]}
if df.having_pet.iloc[i] == 'NO':
   new_issue[having_pet] = {'value':options[1]}


HTML component from Chrome Inspector:


<input class="radio" id="customfield_10543-1" name="customfield_10543" type="radio" value="10461" resolved="">
<label for="customfield_10543-1">
<input checked="checked" class="radio" id="customfield_10543-2" name="customfield_10543" type="radio" value="10462" resolved="">
<label for="customfield_10543-2">

 Please advise how to update the radio button on JIRA based on dataframe that i have.

I know nothing of python or what seems to be a python jira client.

But I know that when updating a radion button with a REST API, the JSON for the value of the option you want to select will look like either




So I would try changing this:

new_issue[having_pet] = {'value':options[0]}


new_issue[having_pet] = {'value':'Yes'}


new_issue[having_pet] = {'id':options[0]}
