Validation on assignee != currentUser doesn't seem to work

In JIRA transition, I have added the following in simple script validation, so people won't assign to themselves for the next state (i.e. code review) issue.assignee != currentUser but this doesnt work, it doesnt check at all.. why is that? My JIRA version is 6.2.7 and ScriptRunner version is 2.1.17

They are different types of users, you will need to use:

issue.assignee?.name != currentUser?.name

Should work fine, can you post a screenshot.

Pls see above. It is worth to understand why the following works:

issue.assignee != originalIssue.assignee
I cannot assign to the issue's original assignee
