Conditional script is not blocking save when logged-in user is retrieved

I created the below Read-Only Conditional script and applied it on Status attribute. It does not block the save operation saying 'State is not modifiable'.
But as soon as I remove the 2 lines (used to retrieve logged-in user) above the return statement, I can see the error  'State is not modifiable' and save operation is blocked successfully. 

So, basically, the save operation is not getting blocked when the logged-in user is retrieved. 
I also observed the same behavior in Validation script.

Any fix?  

dojo.require("com.ibm.team.repository.web.client.session.Session");
(function() {
    dojo.declare("com.example.ConditionalScript01", null, {
        matches: function(workItem, configuration) {
var getAuthenticatedContributor = com.ibm.team.repository.web.client.session.getAuthenticatedContributor;
var loggedInUsername = getAuthenticatedContributor().name;
return true;
        }
    });
})();

 The script uses unsupported API that, if at, all only works in the Web UI. I assume it fails, because one of the lines before the true fails and there is no try/catch around. 


https://jazz.net/library/article/1093 the last labs explain the API available. It is also possible to debug the Web UI or read the logs.

 Hi Ralph, 

Please find below the complete validation script and logs-

dojo.provide("com.example.MyScript");
dojo.require("com.ibm.team.workitem.api.common.Severity");
dojo.require("com.ibm.team.workitem.api.common.Status");
dojo.require("com.ibm.team.repository.web.client.session.Session");

(function() {
var doDebug = true;
var scriptname = "MyScript";
var Severity= com.ibm.team.workitem.api.common.Severity;
var Status= com.ibm.team.workitem.api.common.Status;

    dojo.declare("com.example.MyScript", null, {

        validate: function(attribute, workItem, configuration) {
debug("Start:"); 
var severity = "ERROR"; 
var message = "Custom error message";
try{
var getAuthenticatedContributor = com.ibm.team.repository.web.client.session.getAuthenticatedContributor;
debug("getAuthenticatedContributor: " + getAuthenticatedContributor);
var loggedInUsername = getAuthenticatedContributor().name;
debug("loggedInUsername: " + loggedInUsername);
debug("severity: " + severity);
debug("message: " + message);
} catch (e) {
debug("Exception: " + e.message);
throw(e);
}
return new Status(Severity[severity], message);
function debug(display){    
    if(doDebug){
        console.log(scriptname + " " + display);
    }
    }
        }
    });
})();

MyScript Start:
MyScript getAuthenticatedContributor: function(){
_4();
return com.ibm.team.repository.web.client.internal.AUTHENTICATED_CONTRIBUTOR;
}
MyScript loggedInUsername: Anmol Rattan
MyScript severity: ERROR
MyScript message: Custom error message
______________

I can see the Red Symbol on the attribute but the save is not getting blocked.
I have applied Attribute Validation as well.

The behavior is same for Conditional script as well.

 Create a simple sample first. Read the documentation and the workshop carefully. For validation as well as conditions it is required to configure an advisor/pre-condition to prevent saving if an error or failed condition is detected.


 com.ibm.team.repository.web.client.internal.AUTHENTICATED_CONTRIBUTOR; Is not public API.
