Script Runner Service using a groovy script

I saw a handful of Answers that ultimately led me to:

I've created a script that I ran successfully through the console and want to make into a service to run nightly.

I've put this script into a scripts/capitalization/capproj.groovy file off JIRA application home.  As I understand it, the scripts folder is the script root, so I put "capitalization/capproj.groovy" in the input-file property.

I've set the execution time a few times into the future to see it run, but nothing has happened.  There is nothing in the log files, nothing on the Services page, and more importantly nothing changed.

What am I doing wrong?

Can you add something like:

log.warn ("Service running")

and check that appears in the logs (atlassian-jira.log) ?

Note that if you put it in that directory, the script must begin with 

package capitalization

Jamie, a question - is there anyway to use ScriptRunner services without placing the script file on the server on which JIRA is running? I am an admin in our JIRA instance, but do not have access to the server on which it's installed.
