Scriptrunner script to assign based on reporter

I wrote this very simple script to set the reporter based on the ID of the reporter. In this test case, I'm checking to see if I am the reporter and then assign it to a given user. I check the values of the reporter, the assignee, and the issue:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import org.apache.log4j.Category
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueManager

if (issue.getReporterId() == 'machase')

log.debug("assignee ${issue.getAssigneeId()} reporter ${issue.getReporterId()} issue ${issue}");


The result of my logging is just as expected:

assignee bcherry reporter machase issue TEST-36

However, the issue remains unassigned.

Of course I figured it out right after I posted. The script is fine, but you have to put assignments at the *very top* of the post-functions of your Create transition. It makes logical sense to put it after "creates issue initially" but if you do that, it won't assign.

Leaving this up in case anyone else needs the same thing....
