I'm running a script to create a bone and rotate it by setting rotation_euler of the PoseBone. But I got wrong results from the scripts. My scripts code:

import bpy 
bpy.ops.object.armature_add()
bpy.ops.object.editmode_toggle()
bpy.context.object.data.edit_bones[0].name = 'Bone_1'
bpy.ops.object.mode_set(mode='POSE')
b = bpy.context.object.pose.bones['Bone_1']
b.rotation_mode = 'XYZ'
aaa = b.y_axis
b.rotation_euler[0] = 1.57
b.rotation_euler[1] = 0
b.rotation_euler[2] = 0
bbb = b.y_axis
print(aaa, bbb)

scripts running result:

<Vector (0.0000, 0.0000, 1.0000)> <Vector (0.0000, 0.0000, 1.0000)>

The bone model is rotated correctly, however the outputs are wrong because the attribute of the bone has not changed.
But when I using the python console to run the same code line by line.
The outputs are correct:

>>> bpy.ops.object.armature_add()
{'FINISHED'}

>>> bpy.ops.object.editmode_toggle()
{'FINISHED'}

>>> bpy.context.object.data.edit_bones[0].name = 'Bone_1'
>>> bpy.ops.object.mode_set(mode='POSE')
{'FINISHED'}

>>> b = bpy.context.object.pose.bones['Bone_1']
>>> b.rotation_mode = 'XYZ'
>>> aaa = b.y_axis
>>> b.rotation_euler[0] = 1.57
>>> b.rotation_euler[1] = 0
>>> b.rotation_euler[2] = 0
>>> bbb = b.y_axis
>>> print(aaa, bbb)
<Vector (0.0000, 0.0000, 1.0000)> <Vector (0.0000, -1.0000, 0.0008)>

The bone's attribute has changed correctly.
I don't understand why the console runs correctly but the script runs incorrectly.
Any suggestion where I'm going wrong?

In the python console, the scene is updated at each step, this is not the case in the script.

You can add bpy.context.view_layer.update() after the rotation is changed.

import bpy 
bpy.ops.object.armature_add()
bpy.ops.object.editmode_toggle()
bpy.context.object.data.edit_bones[0].name = 'Bone_1'
bpy.ops.object.mode_set(mode='POSE')
b = bpy.context.object.pose.bones['Bone_1']
b.rotation_mode = 'XYZ'
aaa = b.y_axis
b.rotation_euler[0] = 1.57
b.rotation_euler[1] = 0
b.rotation_euler[2] = 0
bpy.context.view_layer.update() # Update here
bbb = b.y_axis
print(aaa, bbb)
