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
