Setting a version picker (multiple version) from Groovy script



I want to set a version to an issue via groovy (later in a post-function), but am unsuccessful so far. Here is my code:



import com.atlassian.jira.ComponentManager;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.CustomFieldManager;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueManager;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField;
import com.atlassian.jira.project.version.Version;
import com.atlassian.jira.event.type.EventDispatchOption

ComponentManager cm= ComponentManager.getInstance()
IssueManager im= cm.getIssueManager()
MutableIssue issue=im.getIssueObject("DEMO-25")
Version version = cm.getVersionManager().getVersion(issue.getProjectObject().getId(),"1.0")
CustomField customField = cm.getCustomFieldManager().getCustomFieldObject(65) //65 is the id of the field
issue.setSummary("new Summary2")

Where is the problem in this code? The summary is updated correctly and the version exists. I even tried inserting the version into a list since it is a multiple version picker. This also didn't lead to the desired result

Found the problem. Setting it to issue.setCustomFieldValue(customField,[version]) worked
