Set due date from a Post function using Scriptrunner


I am trying to update due date for an issue on a specific transition using post function and Scriptrunner. I have the below code wish is accepted and executed ok. However nothing happens with the Due date field. I am new to this and having a hard time navigating the documentation around it. I have read different posts on the subject and by that collected the code below. Any ideas on what I am doing wrong?

Date date = new Date();
Calendar c = Calendar.getInstance();
c.add(Calendar.YEAR, 1);
c.add(Calendar.MONTH, 0);
c.add(Calendar.DATE, 0);
c.add(Calendar.HOUR, 0);
c.add(Calendar.MINUTE, 0);
c.add(Calendar.SECOND, 0);
Date dateInTheFuture = c.getTime();
issue.fields.duedate = dateInTheFuture;

Here's what I use for this - I'm on Server, so you may have to use the documentation to make a minor tweak if something doesn't work on cloud


import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.CustomFieldManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField
import static java.lang.Math.*
import java.sql.Timestamp


// get current issue

def cfManager = ComponentAccessor.customFieldManager

def dateField = cfManager.getCustomFieldObject(12839) //use the ID of your "Due Date" field


// get today's date

def today = new java.sql.Timestamp(new Date().getTime())


// set value

issue.setCustomFieldValue(dateField, today)

return true
