I think you've asked the same question on the forum? Basically use an absolute path like

C:\Program Files\Atlassian\Application Data\JIRA\script\groovyscript.groovy

or whatever, OR alternatively find out the working directory of jira by pasting in to the admin panel

which will tell you the working directory, and then using a path relative to that.
