How do I create a post function to auto assign to specific users based on the project?

I have multiple projects that use the same workflow.  However, each project has different leads from different groups.  At certain transitions, i would like to auto assign the issue to the relevant lead (Dev, QA, etc.) based on the Project.

Replace key1 as project keis and usernames as actual user names.

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

switch (issue.getProjectObject().getKey()){
    case "key1": issue.setAssigneeId(ComponentAccessor.getUserManager().getUserByName("username1")); break;
    case "key2": issue.setAssigneeId(ComponentAccessor.getUserManager().getUserByName("username2")); break;
    case "key3": issue.setAssigneeId(ComponentAccessor.getUserManager().getUserByName("username3")); break;

This will assing issue to project lead:


When I put that into the custom script field and update the keys/user names, I get errors on the case lines saying:

"Cannot find matching method

com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue#setAssigneeID( (remainder is cut off)

Please check if the declared type is right and if the method exists."

Here is updated script:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

switch (issue.getProjectObject().getKey()){
    case "key1": issue.setAssigneeId(ComponentAccessor.getUserManager().getUserByName("username1").getName()); break;
    case "key2": issue.setAssigneeId(ComponentAccessor.getUserManager().getUserByName("username2").getName()); break;
    case "key3": issue.setAssigneeId(ComponentAccessor.getUserManager().getUserByName("username3").getName()); break;

That worked.  Thank you.
