system priority get changed on workflow transition

System priorites prior code execution in workflow:
Critical
Serious
Important
Minor
I have workflow where i'm using post function to create sub task and under addtional issue action I have code:

condition:: issue.priority?.name == 'Important'
additional issue action:: issue.priority?.name = 'Minor'
If parent issue type is important then this line of code changes system jira priorities

After post transition new pririties
Critical
Serios
Minor
Mionr

You're setting the name of the priority object, rather than the issue priority. Restart jira, then use

issue.priorityId = '4'

There doesn't appear to be a question here. I can't guess if you are complaining that the priority is being changed or you intend it to change and your code isn't doing it correctly.

Could you describe the actual problem here?
