Behaviour Script not working on 'Assign' Screen and 'Assign to me'

I have added a behaviour script on Assignee field to make it read only when a custom user picker field has a value.

The script is working fine on Create and Edit Screen, but it does not work on Assign Screen.

I have tried saving the script as server side as well as Initializer, but got same results.

Also, is it possible to restrict 'Assign to me' functionality using behaviour scripts?

Any help would be appreciated

behaviours work only on create/edit/transition screens, so no luck for assigning I guess.

The workaround I guess would be restricting assigning overall and creating your own "assign" transition.

Not really a solution for your problem, but might set you on a right track as well:

you can restrict option to assign issue overall on a certain status using workflow properties

by adding this property to a status: jira.permission.assign.denied

Hello @Ilya Turov ,

Thanks for your response. 

I got it done on the Assign screen as well. Behaviours work on Assign Screen as well

Best Regards,

Swapnil Srivastav.
