Are you looking to get the ids or descriptions in the options? UnitOfIssue.values() will give you a collection of the ids.

I can't think of a way to get a collection of descriptions without writing some code in the action. It isn't hard code to write of course. Just a loop to build the collection and then stick it in the request/session.
