Jira Misc Workflow Extensions set component value using transition


I'm trying to set a value to the component field with no success.

I'm using the Post-Function option to set a value in the Create issue transition.

I'm using this command:

The value of field Component/s of the current issue will be set to PSW (replacing existing values).


Do you have any idea why the value is not updated? When i'm creating a new issue that using this workflow, the component value is set to None.

Do you have any errors in the log file? Try to make this post-function first in the post function list and see the result. If no success, then move it after the saving post function and before reindexing, see the result.

Thanks for you answer.

I'm not so sure how to get/see the log file?

This post-function is before the re-indexing and after the creation of the issue:
