Post function on Create transition not working Edited

My post function on the create transition is not firing, or if it is firing isn't updating the issue. What I am trying to do is, if the issue created is a story, to move the issue immediately forward to a certain part of the workflow. I've tested the post function on transitions other than the create transition and it works fine. I have also tried re-ordering the post functions with the script going first, last, in-between. 

I've also added two post functions that might be interfering with it.

  1. Creates the issue originally.
  2. Set issue status to the linked status of the destination workflow step.
  3. Stores updates to an issue (no change history is created).
  4. Re-index an issue to keep indexes in sync with the database.
  5. Fire a Issue Created event that can be processed by the listeners.

#Jython code

from com.atlassian.jira.component import ComponentAccessor

if (issue.getIssueType().name == "Story"):
     currentUser = ComponentAccessor.getJiraAuthenticationContext().getLoggedInUser()
     issueService = ComponentAccessor.getIssueService()
     issueInputParameter = issueService.newIssueInputParameters()
     transitionValidationResult = issueService.validateTransition(currentUser, issue.getId(),101,            issueInputParameter)
     if transitionValidationResult.isValid():
          issueService.transition(currentUser, transitionValidationResult)
