Customfield getOptions method returns null

I'm creating a MultipleCustomFieldType type, is working ok, but I'm trying to get the options of the customfield with the method getOptions(String key, FieldConfig config, JiraContextNode contextNode) the same way that the class 'EditCustomFieldOptions' of JIRA does, in that class they used this to get the options:

'options = getCustomField().getOptions(selectedParentOptionId != null ? selectedParentOptionId.toString() : null, getFieldConfig(), null);'

As you can see, they used the method getOptions of a customfield with the associated fieldConfig and a JiraContextNode null, I'm doing the same thing in my method (in a class that extends 'AbstractEditConfigurationItemAction', same class that 'EditCustomFieldOptions' extends ), but I always get a null value for the options, somebody knows why? And yes, the associated field has options configured.

Thank you for your reply.

I think, this code would be useful for you

CustomField cf = ComponentManager.getInstance().getCustomFieldManager()

            cftype = CFType.STANDARD_OPTION_SELECT;
            FieldConfigScheme scheme = Utils.getSchemeObjectForContext(cf);
            Map configs = scheme.getConfigsByConfig();
            if (configs != null && !configs.isEmpty())
                Set<Object> configsKeys = configs.keySet();
                for (Object conf : configsKeys)
                    if (conf instanceof FieldConfig)
                        Options options = optionsManager
                            .getOptions((FieldConfig) conf);
                        if (options != null)
                            if (cfValues == null)
                                cfValues = new LinkedHashMap<Option, Object>(
                            for (int i = 0; i < options.size(); i++)
                                Option option = options.get(i);
                                cfValues.put(option, null);
