How to set repo branch restriction for kind = force

I am unable to set "Allow rewriting branch history" using bitbucket API. I pass this as json_data to my requestimg2.png

def modify_branch_restrictions(self, repo_slug, workspace_id, br_id, json_data):
""" Modify branch restrictions by adding single user to it in specified repository
:param br_id: branch restriction id
:param json_data: json object for modification
:return JSON object containing modified branch restriction data
url = self.BITBUCKET_API_URL + workspace_id + '/' + repo_slug + '/branch-restrictions/' + br_id
headers = {'Content-Type': 'application/json', 'Authorization': 'Bearer ' + self.access_token}

print('url', url)
res = requests.put(url, headers=headers, data=json_data)
if res.status_code == 401:
return self.modify_branch_restrictions(repo_slug, workspace_id, br_id, json_data)
elif res.status_code == 200:
return res.json()
logging.log(level=logging.ERROR, msg=str(res.status_code) + res.text)
return None
br_json = json.dumps({'kind': val['kind'], 'users': user_ids, 'groups': val['groups']})
res = BB_API.modify_branch_restrictions(repo_slug, workspace, str(val['id']), br_json)
ERROR:root:400{"type": "error", "error": {"message": "kind force requires users and groups to be empty, null, or omitted"}}

But if I pass users and groups as empty or drop them then there is no error and the condition remains unchecked.
