Script Runner(validate) check if there is a particular version defined in a multiselect custom field of versions

I'm a "C/perl with C++ from 15 years ago" guy but I'm slowly picking up Java/Groovy syntax on the side so any help would be appreciated.

I reviewed Jamie's page: and tried various formats:

--> cfValues['Planned For'][0] == "main"
--> cfValues['Planned For'].contains("main")
--> cfValues['Planned For']*.value.contains("main")
--> cfValues['Planned For']?.value.contains("main")

Now I tried to determine what I have:
assert cfValues['Planned For'] == "main"
| | |
| [main] false
[Customer:null, Planned For:[main], ...]
So 'Planned For' is an array but lets confirm:
assert cfValues['Planned For'].class == "main"
| | | |
| [main] | false
| class java.util.ArrayList
[Customer:null, Planned For:[main], ...]
What are the elements of the array?
assert cfValues['Planned For'][0].class == "main"
| | | |
| [main] | false
| class com.atlassian.jira.project.version.VersionImpl
[Customer:null, Planned For:[main], ...]
As suspected, I have an array of version objects that I'm trying to compare to string. How can I convert that array of version objects to strings or convert my compare string to a version object? Or what?

After much head banging for checking a custom field(Planned For) of Versions

Here's my condition of a validator where

if Manager then allow
else if Planned For is null then allow
else if Planned For only equals "main" version then allow
else if Planned For only equals "trunk" version then allow
else fails

isUserMemberOfRole('Managers') || cfValues['Planned For'] == null || cfValues['Planned For']*.getName() == ["main"] || cfValues['Planned For']*.getName() == ["trunk"]

or can use the contains method if one of the multiple version is set to xxxx. i.e. "main"
cfValues['Planned For']*.getName().contains("main")

Great, previewing the question really doesn't help with formatting. ;-)
