Linked issue persistence issue

I'm trying to create a post function script that transtions linked issues on transition of parent issue (trying to setup epic -> story for kanban board so when I prioritze epic linked stories are prioritized too).

All was going well but I'm hitting an issue. There's a contraint on the story workflow that two custom fields must be populated - team (multi select) and fix release.

I have the following code:

issueLinkManager.getOutwardLinks(issue.id)?.each {issueLink ->

        if (issueLink.destinationObject.getStatusObject().getName() == toBePrioritized){
            // Transition
            log.debug("updating linked issue status from "+issueLink.destinationObject.getStatusObject().getName()+" to "+priorityReviewed);
            workflowTransitionUtil.setIssue(issueLink.getDestinationObject());
            workflowTransitionUtil.setUsername(currentUser);
            workflowTransitionUtil.setAction(301);
// validate and transition issue
            workflowTransitionUtil.validate();
            workflowTransitionUtil.progress();
            log.debug("successful transtion of "+issueLink.destinationObject.getKey());

        }
        
        if (issueLink.destinationObject.getStatusObject().getName() == priorityReviewed){
            // Transition
            workflowTransitionUtil.setIssue(issueLink.getDestinationObject());
            workflowTransitionUtil.setUsername(currentUser);
            workflowTransitionUtil.setAction(141);
            
            //write targetRelease to custom field
            def linkedTargetReleaseField = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjects(issueLink.destinationObject).find {it.name == targetReleaseString}
            Project project = issueLink.destinationObject.getProjectObject();
            Version version = componentManager.getVersionManager().getVersion(project.getId(), targetReleaseFieldValue);
            linkedTargetReleaseField.updateValue(null, issueLink.destinationObject, new ModifiedValue(issueLink.destinationObject.getCustomFieldValue(linkedTargetReleaseField), version),new DefaultIssueChangeHolder());

            //write team to custom field
            def linkedTeamField = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjects(issueLink.destinationObject).find {teamString}
            OptionsManager optionsManager = ComponentAccessor.getOptionsManager();
            Option teamOption = optionsManager.getOptions(linkedTeamField.getRelevantConfig(issueLink.destinationObject)).getOptionForValue(teamValue, null);
            issueLink.destinationObject.setCustomFieldValue(linkedTeamField,[teamOption])

            // validate and transition issue
            workflowTransitionUtil.validate();
            workflowTransitionUtil.progress();
            log.debug("successful transtion of "+issueLink.destinationObject.getKey()+" to Ready For Development");

        }

however I'm getting an error:

[Error list: [[Team must be defined]]]

This suggests the linked issue (or issueLink.destinationObject) is not getting updated/persisted correctly. What am I doing wrong?
(P.s I'm aware I'm likely making other mistakes too - this is the first time I've tried this....)

I was parsing out values from the parent by doing:

Object teamVal = teamField.getCustomFieldType().getValueFromIssue(teamField, issue);

String teamValue = (String)teamVal == null ? "" : teamVal.toString();

It turns out this produced [team A] - the square brackets caused the mappings to fail. Fixed by doing:

Object teamVal = teamField.getCustomFieldType().getValueFromIssue(teamField, issue);

String teamValue = (String)teamVal == null ? "" : teamVal.toString().replaceAll("\\[", "").replaceAll("\\]","");
