How to edit just 1 custom field in any screen by any specific user?

Is it possible to edit single custom field from any specific screen either from a transition or from the Edit screen itself? Given a condition, that specific custom field which we want to edit will only be editable by some specific user, selected from user picker profield for a project.

Also, that screen may consist of some other custom fields as well.

Why can't you have separate transition, which is available only for the particular user and screen has only required fields 

I agree with this. But I just want to know whether it can be implemented from this approach as well, so that we don't need to create any new transition.

You can try with behaviours functionality of script runner. Using this you can Make field read-only dependent on user role or group

We tried. But unfortunately, user picker profield values aren't fetched in the Behaviors. So, anyway we are looking for some relevant solutions via creating Script Runner on a transition only. 

Although that will be tough for large workflows with many statuses but this is all what we require.
