How to I set a custom group picker field to a user group in JIRA Automation

I want to set a custom field (group picker field - single group) to a particular user group.

My automation looks like this:

"fields": {
"customfield_10140": {"id":"35911a95-667e-4fb6-a5e5-9b4550ce1cc7"}


Error:  (Unrecognized field "id" (Class, not marked as ignorable at [Source: N/A; line: -1, column: -1] (through reference chain:["id"]) (customfield_10140))

When I tried this: 


    "fields": {

           "customfield_10140": {{"id": "35911a95-667e-4fb6-a5e5-9b4550ce1cc7" }}



I get the error:  

(Can not deserialize instance of out of START_ARRAY token at [Source: N/A; line: -1, column: -1] (customfield_10140))


Can someone help me with the context?

This is very strange... now all of sudden I can see my custom field within the Edit Issue.  I didn't see it before and was trying to set the value within the Advanced.  So no issues and resolved!

Hi @Kathi Paquet 

I am glad to see you figured it out.  For future reference, please take a look at this documentation page; it shows examples similar to what you were trying to do:

Best regards,
