Temporary permission change Edited

Hi, I would like to make script where if speciffic person will take a days off (holiday) everyone else in service desk project will not be able to assign him to any issue. I wanna make a new project, let's say i will name it "worker holidays" and if i will assigne someone who goes to holiday to this issue and i will set the start date and end of his holiday so no one from the main service Desk will not be able to assign him during his holiday. When he gets back, he will get earlier permissions 


So my questions is, is there any possibility to change the permissions for a temporary time?. Maybe you have another idea to make this possible in jira core.

I'll start off by saying that I am not a JIRA administrator by any means. However, I think a naive solution to this problem is to create a new user group in JIRA for those on holiday. If they're on holiday, add them to the "holiday-users" group.

Then, you could simply add a validator to the workflow which will prevent anyone from assigning an issue to that person:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
def groupManager = ComponentAccessor.getGroupManager()
!groupManager.isUserInGroup(issue.assignee?.name, 'holiday-users') 

When they're back from holiday, just remove them from the group. There will be no need to change the script or mess with an end date and start dates.
