Business Central - New Purchase Invoice Event

I am trying to create an Automation where an Invoice created in Zahara is pushed into Business Central. I can get this to work with Api 2.0 Preview. The header of the invoice is created and then with an apply to each I created the line items. The issue I have is around Dimension values. Just keeping it simple, I would like to get a value into the DEPARTMENT line item dimension. I am using the trial so its all very standard. 


No mater what combination I try I cannot get a value in. The error is: 

You must get to the parent first to create a dimension set line.

here is my screen shot of my step: 


ID is the ID of the invoice create in the step before. 

Is it even possible to populate Dimensions? If so how do we get at the ValueID's to know what they are and do we need them anyway ? 


If anyone has ever created an invoice with it's subsequent Dimension values then I'd love to hear how to do it.
