Now that we have upgraded to JIRA 4.4.5 the post function to update a custom field to a specific value no longer works. Has the formatting changed? I am trying to set the value of the custome field to either Done or Not Done. A workflow exception is being thrown -

E.g. Look at https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/41736/how-to-set-a-new-selectcftype-value-to-a-custom-field how the Option object now necessary in setCustomFieldValue can be retrieved

ok, that makes things clearer:
It looks like 'not done' is not a valid option for custom field 'Development Complete'. You should check that in the the configuration of your custom field. I'm afraid the option is missing so you should either add it or not use the option anymore in your post function but maybe just clear the field.
If the option 'not done' does not exists anymore you will also notice that you don't have issues with that value. Custom field values which do not correspond to any configured option are deleted during upgrade to 4.4. Maybe you can still find some hints regarding this in your log file if the upgrade is not too long ago.
