Creating new issues with Select List (cascading) field using JIRA REST API

I'm trying to inject a new JIRA issue using JIRA REST API. with JSON format 
Generally it works, however it doesn't work when a "Select List (cascading)" field is missing the child value (to be specific the field has only parent values but no defined children).

The JSON line looks like this: "customfield_22222": {"value": "Test", "child": {"value":"None"} }

And the received error is: {"errorMessages":[],"errors":{"customfield_22222":"Child Option value 'None' is not valid"}}

Using other child values such as null, "", etc. also didn't solve it.
Will be glad to learn from your experience.
