I need to do this too.  The link above does not work for me.  If use this code, it IS getting the newIssueType, but is not able to change the issue type:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

def newIssueType = ComponentAccessor.issueTypeSchemeManager.getIssueTypesForProject(issue.projectObject).find{"Information Only Change"}
if (newIssueType) issue.setIssueObject(newIssueType)

No signature of method: com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueImpl.setIssueObject() is applicable for argument types: (com.atlassian.jira.issue.issuetype.IssueTypeImpl) values: [com.atlassian.jira.issue.issuetype.IssueTypeImpl@e09d6de4] Possible solutions: getIssueObject(org.ofbiz.core.entity.GenericValue), setIssueTypeObject(com.atlassian.jira.issue.issuetype.IssueType
