Automatically assign a sub task when using "create sub-task" post function

I'm tring to set an assignee ( using "Additional issue actions" ) when using create sub-task post function script.

Im using :

issue.assignee == "kereng"

But it is not working ..

What is the correct "Additional issue actions" I should use?

Use the following

issue.assigneeId = "username"

Should do the work for you

Working ... Thanks ..

I'm doing exactly the same thing (issue.assigneeId = "username") but for some users it just doesn't work. It looks like the user is not recognized by it's username.

I did a test. I changed the username of one test-user and also changed it in my post function. The new username is not recognized at all, indicating by a ? in the account image. But I still can assign to the old username.

What can cause this behavior?

Would be great if one has an idea.
