I'm looking to set up a post function that moves an issue to another board once it's through the workflow

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: The 'Update Issue Field' Post-Function

I'm looking to move issues automatically to a board once it's through the work flow via post function.  Is this something that is available to do?

No, and it can't be done at all, because your premise is wrong.  Issues do not "move to another board". 

Boards are based on filters that select issues to be included in the board.

So, to fool people in to thinking "an issue has moved from one board to another", what you have to do is change it such that:

  • Board 1 that it is on now stops showing it because you change something to make the board filter exclude it
  • Board 2 that it is not on begins to show it because you change something on the issue to make the board filter include it.

    You can, of course, automate that, but you need to start by looking at the board filters to see what they select for display
