Updating version fields in workflows via JIRA Suite Utilities

I have:
 JIRA Service Desk 3.3.1
 JIRA Suite Utilities 1.5.3
I modified the "Create" transition on a Workflow to perform the following when an issue is created:

Once the issue is created (after entering a version into the field (Identified in Versions), the Assignee field is set to the Reporter, but neither the Fix Versions nor the Affects Versions are being updated to the value that is in Identified in Versions.
The Identified in Versions, Fix Versions and Affects Versions are all multi-version fields. 
What could I have done wrong?  Is there a better way to copy the values?  I have tried ScriptRunner Behaviours, but that did not work either.

I have corrected the issue.  The problem was the order of the operations in the Post Functions.

The setting to the "Fix" and "Affects" Versions had to come before the "Creates the issue originally" step (Step 1 above).  It did not matter for the "Assignee" field.  I moved Steps 1 and 2 above to just before the final step.

I don't understand why these fields behave so differently, but my issue has been resolved.
