How can I copy a cascading select value with Automation for JIRA?

I'd like to copy a cascading select from one issue to another. This requires the Advanced section in edit issue, but not sure what to put into it?

Lets assume our field is called "Sample Cascade" here.  The advanced JSON block you'll need to copy this in your edit issue action is:

{
  "update": {
    "Sample Cascade": [
      {
        "set": {
          "value": "{{triggerIssue.fields.Sample Cascade.value}}",
          "child": {
            "value": "{{triggerIssue.fields.Sample Cascade.child.value}}"
          }
        }
      }
    ]
  }
}

Here's an example rule that copies from the parent issue to all of its subtasks:
