I'm trying to create a task in Redmine using REST API and assign to a specific user.
I know the login name (or full name) of the user I want to assign the new task to, but I don't know the user database ID.

I could get all users from the server and find the required one, but this operation requires "Administrator" permission, which is a non-starter in many cases.

so, I propose to allow specifying the "task's assignee" with user login name and not just user ID.
