To update the options on a userfield, you can send an HTTP PUT request to the userfield URL with a JSON object containing an options property with the updated value. The options property consists of an array of objects with two possible properties: a string name and a boolean selected flag. The name property must be provided for every option. Dropdown lists and radiobutton inputs may have only one option with selected set to true; checkboxes-type userfields are not limited in how many options can be selected. Because options is a required field, there must always be at least one option provided.

Note that you are not limited to updating one property at a time; all fields that are valid for a particular userfield type may be updated in a single request. All fields not specified will retain their value. See the Userfield Object Reference for a list of all the object’s fields.


This example shows the request-response sequence when updating the options property on a userfield. This will replace the current set of options with three options, the second of which is selected by default.
