Jira Custom Field Select2 problems

Hello!
I try to add a new custom field to Jira Issues. And I’ve faced few problems.

  1. JS code of Select2 becomes available and works only by inserting script below in a velocity edit file. 
    $webResourceManager.requireResource("com.atlassian.auiplugin:aui-select2")
     and other similar methods doesn’t work. Why? How I can fix it?
    <script type="text/javascript"> 
    AJS.toInit(function () {
    AJS.$("#$customField.id").auiSelect2();
    });
    </script>
  2. If I use script above, custom field with Select2 will mostly work correct. But in Issue Screen when I try to add my field by menu “Admin->Add field”, bottom “Submit” will change design and won’t be work. You can see a screen below. Field will not added. What’s the problem?

My edit velocity file code:

#disable_html_escaping() 
#controlHeader ($action $customField.id $customField.name $fieldLayoutItem.required $displayParameters.noHeader)
<form class="aui" style="width: available">
<script type="text/javascript">
AJS.toInit(function () {
AJS.$("#$customField.id").auiSelect2();
});
</script>
<select class="js-example-placeholder-single js-states form-control" name="$customField.id" id="$customField.id" style="width: inherit">
<option></option>
#foreach ($option in $options)
<option value="$option">$option</option>
#end
</select>
</form>
#controlFooter ($action $fieldLayoutItem.fieldDescription $displayParameters.noHeader)

 My atlassian-plugin.xml web-resource dependencies:

<web-resource key="aui-fields-resources" name="aui-fields Web Resources"> 
<dependency>com.atlassian.auiplugin:ajs</dependency>
<dependency>com.atlassian.auiplugin:jquery</dependency>

I solved both issues.
If somebody have a same problem, you'll read a text below.

1. Use this tutorial. Since JIRA 5.0 WebResourceManager is no longer supported.

2. I removed <form></form> wrapper and the button started working.

Hi Alex.

I'm trying to use this solution but my field does not pick any options.

Screenshot 2022-05-10 183755.jpg

could you share the final versions of your js and vm files?

the solution was to use for multiselectCF

#foreach( $option in $configs.options )

instead of 

#foreach ($option in $options) 

btw i've added some check for disabled options/ complete template looks like

#disable_html_escaping()
#customControlHeader ($action $customField.id $customField.name
$fieldLayoutItem.required $displayParameters $auiparams)
<script type="text/javascript">
AJS.toInit(function () {
AJS.$("#$customField.id").auiSelect2();
});
</script>
<select class="js-example-placeholder-single js-states form-control" id="$customField.id"
multiple="multiple" name="$customField.id">

<option></option>
#foreach( $option in $configs.options ) )
#if (!$option.disabled || $option.disabled == false) ||
($value && $value.contains($option.optionId.toString())))
<option value="$option.optionId"
#if ($value && $value.contains($option.optionId.toString()))
selected="selected"
#end
>$cfValueEncoder.encodeForHtml($option.value)</option>
#end
#end
</select>
#customControlFooter ($action $customField.id $fieldLayoutItem.fieldDescription $displayParameters $auiparams)
