Restricting Assignee during transition to respect assignable role property of upcoming state

We've created a workflow that passes between Developers, Producers and QA - and we've added properties where is made sense using 'jira.permissions.assignable.projectrole'

This is working correctly when assigning within that state - but during a transition, Users are able to leave the assignee to the default value (currently assigned user) and this bypasses the permission restrictions.

Does anyone have suggestions or solutions that can plug up this loophole? We have no direct access to code, but can look into any plug-ins or workflow/permissions changes necessary.

Thanks in advance.

You can just add the workflow condition which says "Only assignee can do this". Will thate help?

Thanks for the suggestion, but thats not really what we want - I want to restrict who can be the assignee during/after the transition, not who can perform the transition

Ah, sorry, I misunderstood. You might have to write a validator which ensures that the assignee is in the correct role. Looks like the workflow toolbox plugin provides this.
