CustomField customField = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject("customfield_11011");
def optionsManager = ComponentAccessor.getOptionsManager() ;
Options options = optionsManager.getOptions(customField.getRelevantConfig(issue));
Option newOption = options.getOptionById(new Long(11226)); // Check your option id
issue.setCustomFieldValue(Discipline, newOption)
