CustomField needs to be updated twice before it appears in search results

Hi,

I am using below groovy script to update a custom field of type DateTime Picker every time another field is changed. Update goes fine and I can see that the value of the customfield has been updated. But when I perform a jql search, like say "AutomationUpdatedOn > startOfDay()", it doesn't show me these updated fields unless I update the same field twice. I have tried many things like re-indexing, reIndex(issue) inside my code, but not help.

class UpdateField extends AbstractIssueEventListener {
    Logger log = Logger.getLogger(UpdateField.class)
    @Override
    void workflowEvent(IssueEvent event) {
        log.setLevel(org.apache.log4j.Level.DEBUG)

        def field = event.getChangeLog().getRelated('ChildChangeItem').any{
                it.field.toString().equals("Test Automation")
        }
        if(field){
            MutableIssue issue = event.issue
            ComponentManager componentManager = ComponentManager.getInstance()
            IssueIndexManager indexManager = ComponentManager.getIndexManager();
            CustomFieldManager customFieldManager = componentManager.getCustomFieldManager();
            def issueManager = componentManager.getIssueManager()
            CustomField automationUpdated = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName( "AutomationUpdatedOn" );
            issue.setCustomFieldValue(automationUpdated,new Timestamp(new Date().getTime()))
            User currentUserObj = ComponentAccessor.getJiraAuthenticationContext().getLoggedInUser()
            issueManager.updateIssue(currentUserObj, issue, EventDispatchOption.DO_NOT_DISPATCH, false)
            issue.store()
        }
    }
}

Ok, guys. I have the solution to this issue. Posting here if someone else might be interested.
Issue was with indexing and flushing the cache. Got it running after adding below code.



   if(field){
            MutableIssue issue = event.issue
 boolean wasIndexing = ImportUtils.isIndexIssues(); ImportUtils.setIndexIssues(true);             ComponentManager componentManager = ComponentManager.getInstance()
            CustomFieldManager customFieldManager = componentManager.getCustomFieldManager();
            def issueManager = componentManager.getIssueManager()
 IssueIndexManager indexManager = componentManager.getIndexManager()
            CustomField automationUpdated = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName( "AutomationUpdatedOn" );
            issue.setCustomFieldValue(automationUpdated,new Timestamp(new Date().getTime()))
            issue.store()
            User currentUserObj = ComponentAccessor.getJiraAuthenticationContext().getLoggedInUser()
            issueManager.updateIssue(currentUserObj, issue, EventDispatchOption.DO_NOT_DISPATCH, false)
 if((BuildUtils.getCurrentBuildNumber() as Long) < 614){ ManagerFactory.getCacheManager().flush(com.atlassian.jira.issue.cache.CacheManager.ISSUE_CACHE, issue) } indexManager.reIndex(issue); ImportUtils.setIndexIssues(wasIndexing); 

Why are you checking the build number?

Anybody, guys?? Any hint, direction... any hope :)
