Error updating select list in a post function "ScriptRunner workflow action"

I am trying to update a select list to a specific value and it doesn't seem to like "setFormValue".   I verified the right value of the value I need is 16112.  What am I doing wrong?

I tried following the example here https://scriptrunner.adaptavist.com/latest/jira/recipes/behaviours/setting-default-fields.html#_setting_defaults_for_selects_etc

Inline Script

import com.atlassian.jira.ComponentManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.CustomFieldManager
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueManager;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue;

CustomFieldManager customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager();
CustomField cf = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Package Type");

Map cfVal = issue.getCustomFieldValue(cf) as Map
String value = cfVal.get(null)

if (value == 'Web (WEB)')
{
    CustomField cf2 = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("DB Pkg");   
    def optionsManager = ComponentAccessor.getOptionsManager()
    def config = cf2.getRelevantConfig(issue)
    def options = optionsManager.getOptions(config)
    def optionToSelect = options.find { it.value == "DBA should be consulted" }
    cf2.setFormValue(optionToSelect.optionId)
}

Hi Micelle, 

So I think you confused setting a value in a post function and setting a value using a behaviour. Those two concepts are different. So in a sentence the behaviour makes changes in the client sied (front end) in constrast chenges in a post function are "back end" changes and saved / indexed.

So for the post function the script that sets a value to a select list (dusting a transition) will be something like 

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

def cf = ComponentAccessor.customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("SelectListA")
def fieldConfig = cf?.getRelevantConfig(issue)
def optionToSet = ComponentAccessor.optionsManager.getOptions(fieldConfig).find {it.value == "AAA"}
issue.setCustomFieldValue(cf, optionToSet)

 Hope that helps,

Thanos

Thanks Thanos!   That was very helpful.  Because I set the field based on the value of another field (cascading (first option)) I had to add a little bit more.  Here is the entire "Custom script post-function (inline script)" script...

import com.atlassian.jira.issue.CustomFieldManager
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField

CustomFieldManager customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager();
CustomField cf1 = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Package Type");

Map cfVal = issue.getCustomFieldValue(cf1) as Map
String value = cfVal.get(null)

if (value == 'Web (WEB)')
{
def cf = ComponentAccessor.customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("DB Pkg")
def fieldConfig = cf?.getRelevantConfig(issue)
def optionToSet = ComponentAccessor.optionsManager.getOptions(fieldConfig).find {it.value == "DBA should be consulted"}
issue.setCustomFieldValue(cf, optionToSet)    
}
