Set custom field in 'Clones an issue and links' post function doesnt work for select list


I am trying to clone a log and set up a custom field (single select drop down list).

I went to Post Functions -->Script Post-Function -->Clones an issue and links.


Cloning works fine but as soon as I add 'Set custom field' in 'Additional issue actions' my whole post function stops working.

I am using pre-populated script below

def cf = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjects(issue).find { == 'MyCustomFieldType'}
issue.setCustomFieldValue(cf, 'my value')


where 'MyCustomField Type' = 'Type' and 'my value' = 'Bug Fix'

so it looks like this

def cf = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjects(issue).find { == 'Type'}
issue.setCustomFieldValue(cf, 'Bug Fix')


From what I understand this is not working because 'Set custom field' works only for string values, not select lists (drop down lists).

Can anyone help me write script for a select list???
