Automatically transit cloned in ScriptRunner post action

Jira SW v7.13.1 (Server)

ScriptRunner Version: 6.2.1

In transition of some issue I'm cloning the issue in post-function ("Clones an issue, and links").

I need to move cloned issue to another status (different from Opened) during cloning.

I do it using "Additional issue action" and script:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.workflow.WorkflowTransitionUtil
import com.atlassian.jira.workflow.WorkflowTransitionUtilImpl
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue

WorkflowTransitionUtil workflowTransitionUtil = (WorkflowTransitionUtil) JiraUtils.loadComponent(WorkflowTransitionUtilImpl.class);

// 21 - it is number of transition action
 I receive the following error during running this script:

org.ofbiz.core.entity.GenericTransactionException: Commit failed, rollback previously requested by nested transaction.
It seems that you have tried to perform an illegal workflow operation.
If you think this message is wrong, please contact your Jira administrators.

Here are the details of the Jira API setUserKey 

The workflow script below might help to point you in the right direction if you are unsure

Hope this helps!
