Scriptrunner Behaviours to clear check boxes field

Hi I am trying to clear a number of checkboxes (1 field with 3 checkboxes) and my code below will clear the field but it will not allow the edit to complete. It works if I just set the field to hidden without trying to clear the values. So obviously it's not quite right.

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import static com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueFieldConstants.*
def team = getFieldById(getFieldChanged())
def psc = getFieldByName("PSC Progress")
def constantsManager = ComponentAccessor.getConstantsManager()
def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
def optionsManager = ComponentAccessor.getOptionsManager()
if (team.getValue() =~ "PSC"){ 
    def customField = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject(psc.getFieldId())
    def config = customField.getRelevantConfig(getIssueContext())
    def options = optionsManager.getOptions(config)
    def optionsToSelect = options.findAll { it.value in ["-1"] } 


Thanks in advance,

but it will not allow the edit to complete

what exactly you expect to happen ? An example will be great...


Slight variation to get it working. Was as simple as -
