Behavior does not actually add the value to the issue, it just selects it


I have the following behavior which refers to two custom fields (both are select lists). I want it to set a value to custom field b when something from A is selected:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()

def reqproj = getFieldByName("Requesting Project")
def segment = getFieldByName("Segment")

def reqprojVal = reqproj.getValue()

// If Select List 1 is set to option A then set selectList2 to option B
// Set the value to the ID of option B

else if (reqprojVal.toString().contains("B")) { segment.setFormValue(26744)}

else if (reqprojVal.toString().contains("C")) { segment.setFormValue(26745)}


Although it does not throw an error, it seems that it only selects the value on an issue, but not also actually adds it. To be more clear: if I open an issue, on the view screen I do not see the value for Segment, but if I edit the issue, I see that the proper option is selected.

Please help.

Thank you.

Disregard the question, I applied the behavior to the second custom field instead of the first one.
