Refer to

Multiselects will return a list of Option. You can try something like this.

CustomField customField = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("name_of_cf");

List<Option> options = (List<Option>) customField .getValue(issue);

Great Thanks, but how to determine the options that are actually selected by the user.

List<Option> options = (List<Option>)cfmselect.getValue(issue);
for (int i = 0; i < options.size(); i++) {
Env=options[i] + " " + Env


Added the above solved the issue. Thanks

Hi @Pushparaj Bhask 


Need your help on this.

I have the same requirement , what i need is when ever i have added something in a custom field which is a multi select in an EPIC issue , its parent(which also contains same custom fields which values , but doesnt contain all new values or unique values which are there in its child issue) should get updated with the unique value or new value in the parent issue's custom field.

I have tried with Listener , but unable to do it.

Can you help me on this code? you have created a behavior or Listener for this? can you provide help me for the code? Any help will be appreciated.


Thanks & Regards


In Javascript do something like this

var selectedOptions = AJS.$("your_multiselect_component").val();
