Create branch trigger bypasses post function custom script using ScriptRunner Edited

Transition: Start Progress

Added JIRA trigger

Branch created

Automatically transitions the issue when a related branch is created in a connected repository

Post Function  (note that it always shows success but assignee field remains unchnaged when create branch; only works in normal JIRA transition)

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
// Get the current user
def currentUser = ComponentAccessor.getJiraAuthenticationContext().getLoggedInUser()
def Issue issue = issue

if (currentUser != issue.assignee) {
issue.assignee = currentUser

When a transition is triggered automatically, it ignores any conditions, validators or permissions configured on the transition.

Post function should still execute.   How does the transition tab know who the user is but the post function either doesn't know or doesn't execute?
