Remove impediment flag of issue on transition to new status

I have read a lot of docs now including the answers at Remove "Impediment" flag when dragging issue to "Done". I still cannot figure out how to set up a post function on a transition in an agile workflow that will remove the impediment flag from an issue when it is transitioned to a new status.

I have installed and tried using the JIRA Misc Workflow Extensions but it has not given me an obvious post function to use.

Can someone help please, this should be so simple, I must have missed something.

Install the addon: Suite Utilities for JIRA

Use the post function: Clear field

the field is called "Flagged" (not Marked anymore). Just use the clear field value post-function on this field and you should be fine. The plugin you need is called JIRA suite utilities. It's free and should be installed on every JIRA instance
