sharepoint Online - Update people picker field Default/other options do not work

This is Nintex Workflow on SharePoint Online


When writing an update to a people picker field in a list item using the Office 365 Update Items part I get the following error if I use the default setting (Login Name). I am grabbing the "Created By" field and writing it to another list on a different site in the same collection.


Some parameters failed the validation check.

- [InputMetaDataXml] : The 'Fields to update' is invalid. Input string was not in a correct format.


Ok so fair enough, I switch to user ID and it doesn't throw an error, but it doesn't appear to actually update the field either. I have tried email address and get the error, I didn't bother trying display name.


Anyone ran into this? Am I missing something?
