How to use Behaviours plug-in to auto-fill a custom field with the current user at creation.

We have a field called "Incident Owner" that we want to pre-populate with the current user's name on the create screen. 

We have Adaptivist's Behaviours plug-in, but I'm having difficulty putting together an Initialiser that works. 

Any help would be much appreciated!

Please try this and let me know if it works.

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

def incidentOwner = getFieldById("customfield_12345")

 currentUserObj = ComponentAccessor.getJiraAuthenticationContext().getLoggedInUser()


That did it! Thank you so much!
