My use case is to assign a form to a user. I was thinking to use
_assign field and tried the following
frappe.db.sql( """UPDATE `tabLead Fetch` SET _assign= %s, validation_user=%s WHERE name=%s""", ( user_id_formatted_string, user_id, form_dict['lead_id'], ) )
I checked the database and the _assign was correctly updated but I couldn’t see the change reflecting in UI. Can anyone tell me the proper way of assigning it using the API itself ?
