How to prevent changing the assignee field to "unassigned"?

Hello there!

Guys, I need to prevent changing the assignee field to "unassigned" from View and Edit screen.
I mean I might be able change the assignee to some person, but not to unassigned.

It should be project-specific option.

Could you help me? Thanks ahead!

There is a Instance-level ability to do so: Administration > System > Allow unassigned issues.

Otherwise, you could use workflow validators & post-functions to make sure during transitions this isn't changed.

Another suggestion - you could use "generic" users instead to be auto-assigned. This will help prevent users from editing Assignee field.

Unfortunately, these solutions does not fit. Maybe there are any custom scripts to verify this condition? (I mean scripts for "script type" workflow conditions)
