Butbucket REST API v2 users and groups format for POST

When I try to add branch-restriction for desired repo based on this documentation - with propper users or groups 

data = { 
"kind": "restrict_merges",
"pattern": "master",
"value": None,
"branch_match_kind": "glob",
"users": ["andrew_polishchuk"]

r ="" % (org, repo), headers=headers, data=data)
return r.json()

it returns

{"type": "error", "error": {"message": "malformed users"}} 

If users is a list of dictionaries (as mentioned in docs) with "nickname", "username" or both it still returns the same error json, i.e. with this 

"users": [
"username": "andrew_polishchuk"

Is there any valid payload for adding the desired branch-restriction based on users or groups?
