Clone project not working on issue transition, but works with script console Edited

I have a script which reads some custom fields to get the required information to clone a project.

Then I have the following code to clone the project (only relevant parts are shown):

// Bot user has admin access
// src, tar, and name is read from custom field as String
def copyProject = new CopyProject();
def user = ComponentAccessor.getUserManager().getUserByName("bot");
def inputs = [
(CopyProject.FIELD_SOURCE_PROJECT) : src,
(CopyProject.FIELD_TARGET_PROJECT) : tar,
(CopyProject.FIELD_COPY_ISSUES) : true,
(CopyProject.FIELD_COPY_VERSIONS) : true,
(CopyProject.FIELD_COPY_COMPONENTS) : true,


When I run this script using the script console, I get no errors and the cloning works perfectly.

However I added my script to a workflow transition and every time the transition occurs my script fails.

Here is the error log that I can see:

Can anyone suggest why I could be getting this error?
