Cant set custom field singe-select value

Leoš MAREK May 22, 2023


Im using JiraPS powershell module to interact with the tickets. I need to set a customfield value, the type is single-select. My syntax is exactly as described in the guide here

 $field = @{
customfield_17700 = { id = 40409 }


$field = @{
customfield_17700 = { value = "Myvalue" }

But I always get this error:

Invoke-JiraMethod :
Could not find valid 'id' or 'value' in the Parent Option object.
At C:\lm\scripts\jira\lib\JiraPS.psm1:5505 char:21
+ Invoke-JiraMethod @parameter
+ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
+ CategoryInfo : InvalidResult: (:) [Invoke-JiraMethod], RuntimeException
+ FullyQualifiedErrorId : InvalidResponse.Status400,Invoke-JiraMethod


Any help would be appreciated.

Problem solved. Syntax has to be a like this (new hash table inside the field)

$field = @{'customfield_17700' = @{ id = '40410'}}

This is missing in the documentation above.

I haven't used the JiraPS module much, but should you be using dot notation?  In Groovy or Python, I'd expect to have to reference it something like

Hi Ken,

if you check the link I provided, it say to use the notation that I use. It works well for text field, like

$field = @{

customfield_17700 = "MyText"


However if the field is single-select, I cant update it still. Trying some options, but not successful yet.
