With API wrapper: 'atlassian-python-api' how do I create a request with approvers?

Jira API I'm New Here May 12, 2022

Using the REST API wrapper: atlassian-python-api, how do I create a reqeust with approvers?

I cannot find an example anywhere.

This is such a common use case, I'm not sure why it is not documented and why it has not been asked and answered already a thousands times.

More importantly, why an example has not been included here:

or here

I am trying to create a service desk request. 

I want to add approvers (a list), but I cannot find working code.

I believe I need to find the field ID of the approvers field on my form.  I'm not sure how to do that.

Every page that comes up in a search does not match the current version of the web UI I have.

Ideally I would like to make an API call (any API call - not necessarily using the wrapper), to get this approver field ID.

I have code that is close

repo: git clone
file: src/test/jira-service/
method: def create_sd_request()

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
