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?

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.
