The issue you're working with is just an object in memory. You have to use either the issueManger or the issueService to persist the change to the database

I see you've instantiated the issueService and issueInputParameters but haven't used them. 

Instead of using issue.setComponent, try to use the issueInputParameters:

import com.atlassian.jira.event.type.EventDispatchOption
/* your existing code */
if (ComponentValue) {

def updateValidationResult = issueService.validateUpdate(user,, issueInputParameters
issueServerice.update(user, updateValidationResult, EnventDispacthOption.DO_NOT_DISPATCH, false)


If you want event and email dispatched, you can omit those last 2 parameters or set them accordingly.
