"For Cascading Select fields, you may either use the value of the option to be selected, no need to add the parent for childs. Or simply enter the ID of the option to be selected."
In postfunction I have a Select List (single choice) custom field needed to be updated to its single option 'A' when certain transition occurs. How do I know the value or ID of that option 'A' or do I accomplish to that custom field be populated with option 'A' when the transition occurs. Please help!
If you go to the configure action on the select list field, you will find a link to edit the existing options. Under the edit option screen, you can hover over Edit or Delete link to find the ID of the option. It will be the numeric value following 'selectedValue='.
Or you can use REST API to get details of the custom field and the response will show the options values with id.
@Stuart Harris how did you get it to work ?
I figured out the ID of my field in the URL according to Jobins instructions
and set this to the transition:
I tried also with the '
My Field shows "none" - due to testings you will get "none" if the value you set in the post function does not fit the value in the single-list
Works on cloud as well !
For those of you struggling finding the ID:
Navigate to the appropriate Custom field and its contexts
select "edit options"
At the appropriate "option" select "edit" at the action items
now check the URL
just enter the value in your post function
