Hello @Heiko Treuner 

Where do you do it? In post functions, in listeners, in the console?

If it's a post-function it should be upper then 'Update change history for an issue and store the issue in the database.' function. In other cases, you should use issue update methods. For example

def issueInputParameters = issueService.newIssueInputParameters()

def updateValidationResult = issueService.validateUpdate(user, issue.getId(), issueInputParameters)

if (updateValidationResult.isValid()) {
issueService.update(user, updateValidationResult)

Hey thaks for ur answer i used it in the create post function and have it before 'Re-index an issue to keep indexes in sync with the database. ' but nothing happens

Try to move your function to the first place just before 'Creates the issue originally.' function

def cField=ComponentAccessor.customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject("customfield_10401")

With this snippet you get a specific field where you can do what you want e.q. set other fields like the asignee field. If th fetched value a user picker field
