How to use JQL 'in' operator with a custom field?

Hi All,

I'm attempting to create what seems to be a simple filter to get a list of issues belonging to a set of teams.  My JQL is something like this:

"type = Defect AND status in (Assigned, Submitted) AND "Accountable Teams" in ("Team A","Team B")"

Accountable Teams is an enumerated field that we specified and 'Team A' and 'Team B' are valid values.  If I search for just one (for example, "Accountable Teams" in ("Team A")), it works just fine, but when I add the second value to get issues belonging to Team A or Team B, I get the following error:

"Jql - Input arguments do not represent any valid sequence of option values"

Could this point to an issue with how the field and its values are setup?  Thanks in advance for any feedback.

What is the custom field type and searcher for the "Accountable Teams" field? It might be that the searcher doesn't allow the "in" operator for this field.

There was an issue with the field that it was not allowed.  This has been fixed.  Thanks!
