yes, I  do it. but .... The issue type does change, but the workflow seems to only be partially migrated. The View Workflow button on the issue does show the new workflow, but no workflow buttons are available.

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

You have to use MutableIssue class, not Issue.
Issue for getting info only, MutableIssue for both: getting and changing your issue.

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.event.type.EventDispatchOption
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue

// get issue by key for example
 issue = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager().getIssueObject('ABC-123')

 newIssueType = ComponentAccessor.issueTypeSchemeManager.getIssueTypesForProject(issue.getProjectObject()).find{it.getId() == "3"}

// update issue for saving changes
ComponentAccessor.issueManager.updateIssue(ComponentAccessor.getJiraAuthenticationContext().getLoggedInUser(), issue, EventDispatchOption.DO_NOT_DISPATCH, false)
