How to set components while creating a new issue via soap?

I am using some examples from documantation but it doesn't seem to set the right componets in my ticket. I have the 'id' and 'name' but how do I add it to the issue ? I am trying below line, what is the right way? What is the right xml structure for this? I am using Ruby Savon soap client.

:components => {'components' => {'id' => '10786', 'name' => 'General Troubleshooting'}}

:components => {'id' => '10786', 'name' => 'General Troubleshooting'}

def createjira jiratoken, project, username


# Create issue

response = @jira.request(:create_issue) do |soap|

  soap.body = {

    :in0 => jiratoken,

    :in1 => {

      :type => "3",

      :assignee => username,

      :project => project,

      :summary => "Jira SOAP API Test Ticket",

      :description => "Issue created for troubleshooting'",

      :components => {'components' => {'id' => '10786', 'name' => 'General Troubleshooting'}}

I am not 100% sure about this but I think you may need to use a different hash key than "components". With what you have right now, the resulting SOAP XML would be...

        <name>General Troubleshooting</name>
