How to append value to the custom field (multi select) through post function?

Hi,

I have a select type multi select custom field named 'Languages' and having values 'English', 'Spanish', 'Chinese', 'Hindi'.

Scenarios1: When user only selects Spanish, Chinese automatically append English through post function.

Like Spanish, Chinese, English.

Scenarios2: When user selects Chinese, Hindi automatically append English through post function.

Like Chinese, Hindi, English.

How to do that?

Thanks

Hi Teju,

Your custom script post function should be something similar to 

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue

def issue = issue as MutableIssue
def cf = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager().getCustomFieldObjectByName("MultiSelectA")
def cfValue = issue.getCustomFieldValue(cf) as ArrayList

def optionsManager = ComponentAccessor.getOptionsManager()
def optionCCC = optionsManager.getOptions(cf.getRelevantConfig(issue)).find {it.value == "CCC"}
def optionAAA = optionsManager.getOptions(cf.getRelevantConfig(issue)).find {it.value == "AAA"}
def optionBBB = optionsManager.getOptions(cf.getRelevantConfig(issue)).find {it.value == "BBB"}

if (cfValue?.contains(optionAAA) && cfValue?.contains(optionBBB)) {
    def newValues = [optionCCC] + cfValue
    issue.setCustomFieldValue(cf, newValues)
}

Obviously you can edit the script above to meet your requirements. 

Hope that helps,

regards, Thanos
