Accessing the selected values in the view.vm

I have created a multi-select custom field. In the create view, I have a drop down of items from which you can choose multiple values (see code below). Now, I am trying to access the selected values from my view.vm, in other words, I want to see the selected values when I view the issue. Do you have an idea how to do it?

I need this answer too ~~~

You can access the selected values from a .JS file using this: AJS.$("#yourMultiSelectIdInTheVm option:selected" ).text()
Then injecting this info using a PUT functionality into JAVA; this would require you to create a REST API. However this might not be your purpose. Just posted this here in case you got no other options or to help anyone surfing for a similar answer
