Trying to case search a list (from a checkbox field) to produce text string

Hey all,


I previously asked this question:

But I'm still having trouble with the formatting to make this work.  Basically, I have a checkbox field that can contain multiple values, and I need to check it for specific values, then output a specific result should it contain the right values.

I believe checkbox fields make Lists, so I've set this up to search the test field 'Example'"

def List x = getCustomFieldValue("Example")
switch (x) {
 case ["Test", 'inList']:
     return "A"
        return "C"      


I'm stuck in the 'case' part of the search.  No matter how long the list is, I need a case function that will search through the list for "Test", and if it finds a match, will output "A".  Just can't seem to make it work.

Hi Cody,

The following example works for me.

def multiSelectFieldValues = getCustomFieldValue("multiSelectExample")*.value
log.debug("Values of multi select : ${multiSelectFieldValues}")
if (multiSelectFieldValues?.contains("Option2"))
return 'Option2 is selected'

return 'Option2 is not selected'

Hope this will help you
