is it possible to set stepid from a groovy script?

I can transition an issue with a scriptrunner listnern and a groovy script, but the status name is not correct after transition, but my ticket is in the right position for next transition. 
is there a way to hard code the status name value ?

I think i have found the reason why it did not work. 
the Post Function step have the following tirgger 
Fire a Issue Resolved event that can be processed by the listeners.

And in my script listner my last event is Issue Update


Once i changed this to 


My script start to work as expected

If you are transitioning an issue correctly (i.e. not setting a step id, but going through a transition), then the status will be correct.

I think you need to show us what you are doing in your script.


If i use the script below in scriptrunner console and transition my ticket to just befor the requested automation it works perfectly. 
But the "same" script (the if-statment for installation is the first thing i check in the listner otherwise all is the same. ) the issue is transition but the status value is incorrect.

if (issue.getStatus().getName() == "Installation"){
log.warn("Issue has status Installation")

Issue issueKey = issue
log.warn("issueKey = " + issueKey)

def LinkManagerissue = ComponentAccessor.getIssueLinkManager()
def issueLinks = LinkManagerissue.getInwardLinks(issueKey.getId())
def transitionResult
def workFlowManager = ComponentAccessor.getWorkflowManager()
def workflow = workFlowManager.getWorkflow(issue)

//-----Check what id's are available for transistions
//return workflow.getLinkedStep(issue.getStatus()).getActions().id

def actionId = 421
IssueService issueService = ComponentAccessor.getIssueService()

def transitionValidationResult = issueService.validateTransition(currentUser,, actionId,new IssueInputParametersImpl())
def issueInputParameters = issueService.newIssueInputParameters()
//------Check if transittion is possible
if (transitionValidationResult.isValid()) {
transitionResult = issueService.transition(currentUser, transitionValidationResult)
if (transitionResult.isValid())
{ log.warn("Transitioned issue $issue through action $actionId") }
{ log.warn("The transitionValidation is not valid")}


// validate update -------------
UpdateValidationResult updateValidationResult = issueService.validateUpdate(currentUser, issue.getId(), issueInputParameters)
//return UpdateValidationResult
return updateValidationResult.isValid()

if (updateValidationResult.isValid()){
// update the issue ----------
issueInputParameters.setStatusId("CUSTOMER ACCEPTANCE")
IssueResult updateResult = issueService.update(currentUser, updateValidationResult)
if (!updateResult.isValid()){
log.warn("error updateResult: " + updateResult.getErrorCollection().toString())}
} else {
log.warn("error: updateValidationResult" + updateValidationResult.getErrorCollection().toString())}


Below is the result i get using scriptrunner listeners



It shall look like this
