It turns out the problem is with my expectation rather than with the tool. I had created a custom checklist field using this add-on in trial mode and my configuration of that field had the list items included as part of that configuration. Evidently, the tool is working as intended and does not allow for issue level inline editing of 'global' list items (those that are created as part of the configuration process). It DOES, however, allow for inline editing of checklist items created at the issue level. So, for my application, I modified the existing custom checklist field to have no pre-defined checklist items and created a text file containing my list markup which can then be copy/pasted into the import dialog at the issue level.
Personally, I view this as a workaround and would like to see 'global' checklist items be editable by those granted appropriate access.
Since this wasn't clear to me from the documentation provided online, I hope this is helpful for others taking a look at this add-on.
I believe I've figured out the problem. My checklist field is configured with no options in the option list. When I change that to have at least one item in the checklist, then the post function fires correctly and appends the new options to the list. So it seems your code just isn't happy without at least one item in the configured list to begin with.
I saw this when I was reading about this plugin:
