Post Function for setting security level removes the transition permission from the user


I have written a groovy script to set different security levels to issue based on a customfield value. This code actually changes the security level but the it hides the transition/removes the permission to execute the transition from the users .

I want to set the issue security level and the transition also should be accessible for the users who have permission for that. 

Please check my code and suggest

My code goes here:

import com.atlassian.jira.ComponentManager; 
import com.atlassian.jira.ManagerFactory ;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueImpl;
import org.apache.log4j.Category ;
import com.opensymphony.workflow.loader.ActionDescriptor;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue;
import org.ofbiz.core.entity.GenericValue;
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor;
import com.atlassian.jira.bc.project.component.ProjectComponent;
import com.atlassian.jira.bc.project.component.ProjectComponentManager;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueFactory;

ComponentManager componentManager = ComponentManager.getInstance() ;
def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager();
def plant = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Plant");
def plantValue = issue.getCustomFieldValue(plant) as String;

if( == "Plants")
log.debug("**********Received plant value*********");
else if(plantValue.contains("Patancheru")) 
else if(plantValue.contains("Ankleshwar")) 
else if(plantValue.contains("Kasna")) 
if( == "Non-Plants")

The setting of the security level is what is removing the user's permission to act on the issue.

Thanks Nic for your reply.

The users are in the security level and have the transition permission also. then why the change in security level restricts the transition?I have tested it by adding Admin Id in a security level and created an issue. The same happens to me.
