set Assignee on create issue post function

We have component leads set as default Assignee. I am trying to bypass this feature using groovy post function based on the value of a different custom field. After setting assignee, getAssignee function is returning the updated Assignee but the value is not persisting since the assignee on UI showed as set to component lead. How can we handle this?


mi.setAssigneeId (lead);
log.debug("assigneeId :: "+mi.getAssigneeId())

Put your function first in the list, it should work then.
