JIRA API - Create Issue with custom field multi select Edited

I'm trying to create issues with a multi select set but it doesn't work. The other custom fields get populated but not the one below:

"customfield_10202" : [{"SLA Service" : "Search Services for Retail Customers"}]

 Whole curl command to create issue

curl -u admin:postgresql -X POST --data '{"fields":{"project":{"key":"SR"}, "summary":"hd", "description":"Creating of an issue using project keys and issue type names using the REST API", "issuetype":{"name":"Incident"}, "customfield_10200" : "538", "customfield_10201" : "hd", "customfield_10202" : [{"SLA Service" : "Search Services for Retail Customers"}], "customfield_10007" : "2011-10-19T10:29:29.908+1100", "customfield_10203" : "PIHOC9X", "customfield_10204" : "https://lpi-nsw.pagerduty.com/incidents/PIHOC9X", "customfield_10008" : "2011-10-19T10:29:29.908+1100"}}' -H "Content-Type: application/json" http://localhost:8080/rest/api/2/issue/

Response:

{"id":"10476","key":"SR-80","self":"http://localhost:8080/rest/api/2/issue/10476"}

 Retrieving Issue using API, field 10202 is empty

      }

But when I set it manually I see

"customfield_10202":[  
               {  
                  "self":"http://localhost:8080/rest/api/2/customFieldOption/10118",
                  "value":"Search Services for Retail Customers",
                  "id":"10118"
               }
            ],
