Limit list of assignable users to Issue Security context


I've configured an Issue Security Scheme for a project. Users can only view/edit issues of their respective issue security context.

Now, I would like to limit the "Assignable Users" list to only those users, who actually have the permission to view/edit the issue, or to prevent a user from assigning an issue to a user who is not able to view/edit the issue.

I've found this: Can't assign issues to users due to security level

It is stated that this behaviour was a bug, but I would actually expect JIRA to work like that. Otherwise the process could be stuck because issues could be assigned to users who are not allowed to view/edit them.

I don't have "Current assignee" configured for my issue security levels on purpose.

Is it possible to limit the "Assignable Users" list to only users who have the permission to interact with the issue, based on their security level?
