Cascading drop down to people lookup field

Powerapps is linked to a SharePoint Online list


Combo box 1:  Asset Type (2 options): IT Asset, Non IT Asset


If this box is set to "IT Asset" I need it to:


Combo Box2: Approval (Person Field from SharePoint); Set to name of IT director and gray out (disable) will call "John Doe"


I have set combo box defaultSelectedItems and default to:

If(DcdAssetTypeV.Selected.Value ="IT Asset",{Claim:"i:0#.f|membership|", DisplayName:"John Doe"},Parent.Default)


I have set the data card update property to:

If(DcdAssetTypeV.Selected.Value ="IT Asset",{'@odata.type':"Microsoft.Azure.Connectors.SharePoint.SPListExpandedUser",Claim:"i:0#.f|membership|", Department:"",DisplayName:"John Doe"},DataCardValue70.Selected)


I have gotten the name to show in the powerapp but it is not saving the name to the sharepoint list.  Any thoughts?



Any and all assistance to accomplish this would be helpful!
