How can I set a selected list CF during transition?


I want to set a custom field value when the subtask is created.

The subtask is created during transition in the mainissue workflow. The custom field to be set is a single choice selected list in the subtask with the following options: "1", "2", "3", "4". I've already tried the following code:

def cf = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjects(issue).find{'Gate'}
issue.setCustomFieldValue(cf, '1')

 I've included the code in additional issue actions.

You need to use an option object, see Hennings answer:

 Thank you Udo Brand!


import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.CustomFieldManager
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
def cf = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjects(issue).find{'Gate'}
def fieldConfig=cf.getRelevantConfig(issue)
issue.setCustomFieldValue(cf, value)
