I want to require an assignee during transition Edited

I tried to use Script Runner simple script validator and it is not working. Here is my script: originalIssue.assigneeId

I have 'Assignee' field on my screen. The user selects 'Assign to Me' and then selects 'In Progress'. JIRA returns 'Assignee is re required' in red.

Also, we don't want to use JIRA Suite Utilities. We're trying to resolve using Script Runner instead.

Any suggestions? Thanks!
