groovy "Script workflow post function" not updating the field values


I'm trying to execute a sample groovy script from workflow post function. But the reporter field value is not getting updated 


import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueManager;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue;

String issueKeyFrom = "xxx";
String issueKeyTo = "xxx";

IssueManager issueManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager();
Issue issueFrom = issueManager.getIssueObject(issueKeyFrom);
MutableIssue issueTo = issueManager.getIssueObject(issueKeyTo);

I deployed the script to the correct location.

When I run this script from script runner console - the reporter field does get updated.

I'm sure that:

  1. The script is correct
  2. It is deployed to the correct location
  3. The script is getting executed when I process the issue to a particular transition

 issueTo.getReporterUser() is logging the correct name. its just when I go to the issue, I cant see the changes. I tried refresh,new window, different browser

Please help!! TIA
