Getting {"customfield_XXXX":"data was not an array"}}. Using C# and Atlassian SDK to create issues

I have the following c# program 


var jiraService = Jira.CreateRestClient(


var fieldType = jiraService.Fields.GetCustomFieldsAsync();

var createIssue = jiraService.CreateIssue("OP");

foreach (var i in values)
createIssue["Value1"] = i.Values1;
createIssue["Value"] = i.Value;
createIssue["Date1"] = i.Date1.ToString("yyyy-MM-dd");
createIssue["Date2"] = i.Date2.ToString("yyyy-MM-dd");
createIssue["Value2"] = i.Value2;
createIssue["Value4"] = i.Value4;
createIssue["Value5"] = i.Value5;
createIssue["Value6"] = i.Value6;
createIssue.Summary = i.Summary;
createIssue["Value7"] = i.Value7;
createIssue.Type = i.Value8;
createIssue["Value9"] = i.Value9;


class MyClass
public string Value{ get; set; }
public string Value1 { get; set; }
public string Value2 { get; set; }
public DateTime Value3 { get; set; }
public DateTime Value4 { get; set; }
public string Value5{ get; set; }
public string Value6{ get; set; }
public string Value7{ get; set; }
public string Value8 { get; set; }
public string Value9{ get; set; }
public string Value10{ get; set; }
public string Value11{ get; set; }
public string Value12 { get; set; }
public string Value13{ get; set; }

public static AuditOfJiraAuditor FromCsv(string csvLine)
var values = csvLine.Split(',');
var csvValues = new AuditOfJiraAuditor();

csvValues.Value0= values[0];
csvValues.Value1= values[1];
csvValues.Value2= values[2];
csvValues.Value3= DateTime.Parse(values[3]);
csvValues.Value4= DateTime.Parse(values[4]);
csvValues.Value5 = values[5];
csvValues.Value6= values[6];
csvValues.Value7= values[7];
csvValues.Value8= values[8];
csvValues.Summary= values[9];
csvValues.Value10= values[10];
csvValues.Value11= values[11];
csvValues.Value12= values[12];

return csvValues;

I get error on createIssue["Value1"] = i.Values1; saying data was not an array

the filed type is nFeed. Do I need to do something special for that?
