Need Help in Changing Story Status

Hi,  I need to change the status of a current story issue based on its parent epic status. So I have two conditions in my groovy script and when any of those conditions satisfies..I will have to change the story status..I tried using setStatus method in the logic..but seems there is no such need help if possible. TIA

I am using ScriptRunner. I saw through above links..but in my case its not a transition actually..its just replicating the parent epic status. 


I tried something like this :


if (storyStatus == "Open") {
String epicKey = getFieldByName("Epic Link").getValue()
if (epicKey==null){
//Grab the parent epic issue
Issue epicIssue = issueManager.getIssueObject(epicKey)

//Grab the linked epic status status
def epicStatus = epicIssue.getStatus().getName()

Is there any flaw here or anything that I am Missing

You can not just "set" a status, you must transition your issues through the workflow to the desired status.

Kindly have a look at how to transition an issue

if you have ScriptRunner then there is a built in function Fast track transition issue

If you have Power Scripts then you can use the autotransition function:
