Hi Amar,


I was able to set the field values for a multi-select field by correcting the syntax of the code you provided.  I used the REST API Example as a guide.  If you change the code to read as 

issue.update(fields={'customfield_10100': [{'value':'Two'}]})

I believe it should work. 

yes thank you for the reply.. i did figured it out

Hey i need to modify single select field (drop down)  i tried below code.

1. issue.update(fields={'customfield_11104': 'Staging'})

2. issue.update(fields={'customfield_11104': [{'value': 'Staging'}]})

3. I tried this one also issue.update(fields={'customfield_11104':[{'value':'46707'}]})

but got the error like 

response text = {"errorMessages":[],"errors":{"customfield_11104":"Could not find valid 'id' or 'value' in the Parent Option object."}}

This customfield_11104 is a single select dorp down field.
