“username format is invalid” workflow error

Workflow to assign item permissions suspends with description “the user name format is invalid“.  


configured workflow task as follows:

 

Destinations site URL:  Workflow context: current site URL

Connection: SP online

List name: workflow context: list name

Items to update: query builder

Scope: unchecked

filters: Update items only when the following is true

 

Update the items when column: ID

Is equal to

Current item: ID

 

Inherit permissions from parent: equals value No

 

remove existing permissions: equals value Yes

 

Target: group

User or group name:  !!!!this is a text field not a user or group lookup. I copied the exact name of the user groups here.!!!!


permission:  Full Control

 

Custom permission: blank

 

All matched items updated: left blank

 

List item ID: left blank

 

List item URL: left blank

 

I used this type of task frequently in the past on older versions of Nintex workflow with no problem.  I’m very confused by the new interface and the concept of connections. The online resources have been useless. 

please help!
