Jira - custom select field, invalid value when updating

I have a custom field that uses a selectCFType. The data I populate the option value with has "-" and ".". When I select a value and update the issue, I recieve an error that says Invalid value and allowed values are -1. Is there a way around this?

Thanks,

-Jim

Hi Jim,

The option you are adding should be already available to the SelectCFType custom field.

On the customfield call the getOptions method. If you do not see your options there, you need to add the option to the custom field and then update the customfield with that option.
