what is the proper syntax to update JIRA issue priority in a workflow post-function?

I'm using the built in script to clone an issue and my conditions appear to be working correctly because the clone is successful but I also want to add a additional issue action to set the priority of the resulting clone. I've tried " issue.priority?.name == 'Blocker' " and a few other options but the priority is always left unset in the clone.

Thank you.

issue.priorityId = '1'

where '1' I think is blocker, and '5' is minor IIRC.

if you use issue.priority you need to provide a GenericValue - see https://developer.atlassian.com/static/javadoc/jira/5.0.5/reference/com/atlassian/jira/issue/MutableIssue.html

Thank you! that worked.
