How to get checklist values and use the IN equivalent of SQL commands

I'm trying to figure out how to check if Check List Field has a specific value ticked.

Say Check List Field = CHECK1

Opions are OPT1, OPT2, OPT3.

I want to check if OPT2 is ticked and return a value. Thank you!

if (issue.get("customfield_12345") == null)
	return null;
if ("OPT2".equalsIgnoreCase(issue.get("customfield_12345").getValue())
  return "OPT2 checked";

where 12345 is the numerical id of the CHECK1 field (see the doc for an explanation of how to find it).

Thank you David! Appreciate your answers. What if I duplicate named options? How to I distinguish between them? Is there also a syntax for it like below: cfValues['Custom Field Name'][0].getValue() == 'OK' cfValues['Custom Field Name'][1].getValue() == 'OK' cfValues['Custom Field Name'][2].getValue() == 'OK' cfValues['Custom Field Name'][3].getValue() == 'OK' cfValues['Custom Field Name'][4].getValue() == 'OK' cfValues['Custom Field Name'][5].getValue() == 'OK'

also, I got the following error on the logs (I just checked now since I was confident is was going to work, sorry.): [innovalog.jmcf.fields.CalculatedTextField] CalculatedTextField: error evaluating formula: Sourced file: inline evaluation of: `` if (issue.get("customfield_13811") == null) return null; if ("Received". . . . '' : Error in method invocation: Method getValue() not found in class'java.util.ArrayList'

I didn't get that your field was a multi select field. In that case, issue.get(...) will return an array list of Option objects. So you'll need to iterate over that array : for (Option o : issue.get(...)) {

if (o.getValue().equals("...")) return "...";

}

Tried the following which is the first item in the checklist : <!-- @@Formula: if (issue.get("customfield_13811") == null) return null; for (Option o : issue.get("customfield_13811")){ if (o.getValue().equalsIgnoreCase("Received")) return "OK"; } --> Got the following error in the logs [innovalog.jmcf.fields.CalculatedTextField] CalculatedTextField: error evaluating formula: Sourced file: inline evaluation of: `` if (issue.get("customfield_13811") == null) return null; for (Option o . . . '' : Class: Option not found in namespace How do you detemine the letter o?

Can you try by simply removing "Option" (keep "o : ")?

Still not working. :(

By the way, the field is a checklist. Although, I think that's the same with multiselect.

"Not working" doesn't really help... Any error in the logs (if so, it has to be a different error)?
