JIRA Automation Plugin Setting Component

I'm trying to set component hierarchy in a project via JIRA automation PluginAgile Classic Boards had the ability to associate one component with another and add a "parent" component when a "child" component was added. 

Post Agile update, Classic boards are gone so now I'm trying to set the component via JIRA Automation Plugin.

I already tried Edit Issue Action --> "component=componentname"; with no success. 

What is the correct Edit fields expression?

Thank you all

you must use the id instead of the component name.

e.g. components=10601



Did you ever resolve this? I'm trying to add a component based on Automation also.
