How to set value of a custom field in jira using groovy script?

I need to copy value of a custom field into another customfield.
I tried this.

CustomField cf1 = cfManager.getCustomFieldObject(11419)
CustomField cf2 = cfManager.getCustomFieldObject(10204)
issue.setCustomFieldValue(cf2,issue.getCustomFieldValue(cf1))
 
But setCustomFieldValue function makes changes only in the issue object here but changes are not reflected in database. How can I achieve this?

Hello, @sandeep vb.

Try solution that I suggested here.

Thank you very much Andrey Kuzmin, I tried what you had mentioned. I could make changes in the user database successfully.
