How to know value or ID of the option ?

Hello All,

"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!


Thanks!

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.
