ScriptRunner auto update CF on all events

I have a problem with my event listener. It is set to 1 project and all events:

CODE:

import org.apache.log4j.Logger
import com.atlassian.jira.event.issue.IssueEvent
import com.atlassian.jira.event.issue.AbstractIssueEventListener
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
MutableIssue myIssue = (MutableIssue) event.issue;
log.info("[UpdateFirelight] Script fired");
def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
def customField = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjects(myIssue).find {it.name == 'Firelight'}
if (myIssue.priority.name=='Blocker') {
log.info("[UpdateFirelight] Firelight Red");
myIssue.setCustomFieldValue(customField, "Red")
}
if (myIssue.priority.name=='Critical') {
log.info("[UpdateFirelight] Firelight Yellow");
myIssue.setCustomFieldValue(customField, "Yellow")
}
if (myIssue.priority.name!='Blocker' && myIssue.priority.name!='Critical') {
log.info("[UpdateFirelight] Firelight Green");
myIssue.setCustomFieldValue(customField, "Green")
}
log.info("[UpdateFirelight] Script finished");

 

-------------
I can see that it runs, and without error. But I see no logs nor changes on my custom field. Anyone can help?

As I am really new to script runner, I do not get what I have to change to get it working.


I had a look at http://stackoverflow.com/a/8264451 but can not figure out how to change mine.

Dear @Benjamin Vonlanthen, 
  1. after you set custom filed value you should store it to database using  

    ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager().updateIssue(ComponentAccessor.getJiraAuthenticationContext().getUser().getDirectoryUser(), myIssue, EventDispatchOption.ISSUE_UPDATED, false)
  2. (Optinal ) It seems that swich is more suitable for this script.

I got it working with your suggestion. I needed to adjust some other things, but it works now! Thanks
