how do i Auto update epic status with epic link issues status with Script runner postfunction


I'm trying to change the status of an epic with a post function in script runner.
I'm doing it in the workfow of the issues as a postfunction. I want the epic status to change and go IN PROGRESS when at least one of the epic link issue is IN PROGRESS.

I tryed many way but i can't figure how to do it since i'm not expert in scriptrunner (actualy Altlassian partner in formation)

i find this code but i donc succeed at making it executable as a postfunction...

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

import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueInputParameters;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueInputParametersImpl;
import com.atlassian.jira.bc.issue.IssueService

CustomFieldManager customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager();
IssueManager issueManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager();
IssueService issueService = ComponentAccessor.getComponent(IssueService);
CustomField epicLinkField = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName('Epic Link');

//hardcode lookup to issue for script console:
MutableIssue issue = issueManager.getIssueObject("TEST-15"); 

IssueInputParameters issueInputParameters = new IssueInputParametersImpl([:]);

//lookup the corresponding epic via the subtask's parent
MutableIssue epic = issueManager.getIssueObject(

// 21 is the transition ID in my workflow
IssueService.TransitionValidationResult validationResult = 
    issueService.validateTransition(epic.getAssignee(),, 21 as Integer, issueInputParameters)

def errorCollection = validationResult.errorCollection
if (! errorCollection.hasAnyErrors()) {    issueService.transition(epic.getAssignee(), validationResult)    log.error("OK")
else {    log.error("ERROR")

Can you please give me some help ?

Thank you in advance.
