Priority (System Field) CAN'T Capture Behavior ScriptRunner

Hi All, Can you please help me on my problem regarding with the Priority (System Field)

Scenario is I like to show/hide custom fields on  EDIT ISSUE SCREEN based on the value of Priority . Let's say Priority is set to Priority 1 or 2 upon creation, when the agent changes the Priority 1 or 2 to Priority 3 or 4 , custom fields (related fields for Priority 3 or 4) will come up and be required. If the agent changes Priority 3 or 4 back to Priority 1 or 2, custom fields (related fields for Priority 1 or 2) will come up and related fields for priority 3 or 4 will be hidden and not required.

I am using this code , server-side within the Priority (system field) on the Behavior

Am I working it right? Any suggestions will be very much appreciated. Thank you

import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueManager
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.CustomFieldManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField


def priority = getFieldById(getFieldChanged())
def customField = getFieldByName("Incident Owner")

if (priority.getValue() as String == "Priority 1" || "Priority 2") {



} else if (priority.getValue() == "Priority 3" || "Priority 4) {
