Custom Script Validator on issue transition. Validate users


On a transition screen. A user is currently forced to enter a comment and also assign the issue.

I would like to add a validator where the assignee can only set the assignee to;

the current reporter or a member of a group (senior-content-editors).

Can I please get some assistance on how I can set this? I also don't know which option I have to choose from this menu;

Here is code for simple script validator

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue

if(ComponentAccessor.getGroupManager().isUserInGroup(issue?.getAssignee(), "senior-content-editors"))
    return false

    return false

return true
