convert script field from string to single choice select list

hello im using this scrip field:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessorimport com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.FieldManagerimport com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField

def CategoryCF = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager().getCustomFieldObjectByName("Catagory_for_EazyBi") as CustomFielddef tripleValues = CategoryCF.getValue(issue)if (tripleValues == null)

{return null}

return tripleValues.toString()

how can I convert the field result as a single choice select list.

Scripted fields are display only, they don't gather or hold data.  A select list that doesn't do anything isn't a lot of use.

What are you trying to achieve?

i have a script field that  show me the project category.

and i wanted to use this field in the rich filter dashboard  add-ons.  the add on support gave walkaround 


thanks anayway.
