Problem in setting the values to a cascading select custom field using SOAP API

I have a cascading selecct custom field like

child1

child 2

parent 2

child 3

child 4

RemoteCustomFieldValue customField=new RemoteCustomFieldValue("customfield_10010",null,new String[]{"parent1"});
RemoteCustomFieldValue customField1=new RemoteCustomFieldValue("customfield_10010",1,new String[]{"child1"});

remoteCustomArray[0]=customField;

remoteCustomArray[1]=customField1;

issue.setCustomFieldValues(remoteCustomArray);

and i am getting an exception,

com.atlassian.jira.rpc.exception.RemoteValidationException: {customfield_10010=The option 'parent1' is an invalid parent option} : []

Which version of JIRA? Try giving the option ID instead of value and see if it helps.

Hi, i tried by giving the option Id for the parent select list. But I have no idea how to get the Id for the child select list box.

The version is Jira 4.2 and i am using SOAP API.
