Automation : set custom field with assignee

Hi all,

I created a custom field called "Developer(s)" (type of field: User Picker (multiple user)) and I would like to automate an action when I make a transition to a particular state.

I would like to trigger an action to *set* to this custom field the name of the assignee. Is this possible? Ideally, even better, I would like to *add* to this custom field the name of the assignee if there is already another name (but it may be too much to ask...).

I tried many things like what is proposed in the following thread, but I cannot get it to work, maybe this does not apply to custom fields?

For example:

    "fields": {
        "engineer": { "id": "{{assignee.accountId}}" }


    "update": {
        "Developer(s)": [{
            "set": {{initiator.accountId.asJsonObject("id")}}

Any ideas? :)
