Create subtask with scriptrunner: setting assignee

I'm using "Create sub-task" post function when creating issues. Unfortunately the script always sets the assignee of the subtasks to the parent's assignee.

I want to set it to a "hard-coded" specific user (no role member etc.).

My sub-task is using an own workflow, but "Update field value" / Assignee = <User> is not working although it's located after "Create issue" post function.

Any ideas how to do it?

This widget could not be displayed.

Use the following in additional issue actions box

issue.assigneeId = "username"

That was easier than expected. Thanks!

This was simply the easiest way to do this. Thanks @Kostas Tsolakos. I was hope less in finding the easier way.
