I need to get the selected values for a Custom Multiselect field. Had searched the forums but there is no concrete answer for the same.

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

In Javascript do something like this

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