How to retrieve the option id of the Select List (single choice) custom field

I'm trying to conditionally update by post function a single choice select list.

When doing it by post function copy cf value from field to field - in certain cases it's being updated textually but in a two dimensional gadget for these values I can see that this issue is in "None" value.

Trying to do so by a scripted post function too - but I can't find the option_id's for its optional values.

I can see that this something like "cusomfield_xxxx-val" and then the text of the value.

 

Thanks

You need to get and set an option object, not a string or id.

The snippet I used for fetching one should get you going:

def customFieldManager = ComponentManager.getInstance().getCustomFieldManager()

def cf = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("My colour list")

def fieldConfig = cf.getRelevantConfig(issue)

def value = ComponentAccessor.optionsManager.getOptions(fieldConfig)?.find { it.toString() == 'Red' }
