Not sure where this is referenced anymore, but the trick is to reference the first value of the cascade select normally using the field id and the second value using the field id followed by :1

That trick indeed worked !!! Thanks a lot.

Here is how I used it

RemoteFieldValue[] updatedFields = new RemoteFieldValue[2];

updatedFields[0] = new RemoteFieldValue();

updatedFields[0].id = "customfield_11480";

updatedFields[0].values = new string[] { "18170" };

updatedFields[1] = new RemoteFieldValue();

updatedFields[1].id = "customfield_11480:1";

updatedFields[1].values = new string[] { "18190" };
