Set Cascading Select values in create post

I have a cascading-select custom list named "Team" and I want to set each of the Team list values curing a create issue. I can't seem to figure out how to set the primary list and secondary list.

Running JIRA 6.2 and using Groovy

The following code does not seem to work:

Option ctOption = optionsManager.getOptions(cfTeam.getRelevantConfig(issue)).getOptionForValue("TeamA", null);

   Option ctSubOption = optionsManager.getOptions(cfTeam.getRelevantConfig(issue)).getOptionForValue("SubTeam A", null);

   issue.setCustomFieldValue(cfTeam, [ctOption, ctSubOption])

Note, when printing debug statements, ctOption finds "Team A", but ctSubOption does not find "SubTeam A" and cfTeam does not get updated.

Thanks for any help!

are you speaking about multiselect or cascading select field?

if you are trying to set value for cascading field then check the following question

Glad to hear it worked!!

i changed field name from multiselect to cascading select in your question so it will help to other users!!

you must get the option that is relevant for you issue :

FieldConfig clientCustomFieldConfig = clientCustomField.getRelevantConfig(myIssue);
final Options options = optionsManager.getOptions(clientCustomFieldConfig);						 
Option coption = options.getOptionForValue("TeamA", null);

do not use issue.setCustomFieldValue but use updateValue instead

if (coption != null) {
	clientCustomField.updateValue(null, myIssue, new ModifiedValue(null, coption), changeHolder);
}

as stated n you might want to look at https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/234417/groovy-set-cascading-field-value
