Assigning a User to an Issue in a Plugin Without REST API?

Hello, I started working with Sentry and Sentry plugins about a month ago, so Iā€™m fairly new to this.

I am currently working on a plugin that does auto-assignment to new issues, and it uses the REST API to assign issues to users. I am just wondering if there is a more internal method or function that will do this, eg. some kind of function from the sentry class or library that allows a plugin to set various fields of an issue.

Thanks in advance :slight_smile:

Forgot to mention, this is for a python plugin.

Going to be attempting this using the internal client (if there is one). Still exploring possibilities.
