I am trying to share accounts with a group whenever a service activity is created. The account the service activity references will be shared until the SA has been completed then unshared once it is closed. I cannot seem to get the account sharing to work. If I share the primary entity "the service activity" it works fine. I am unsure of what to use as the attribute name to access my related entity.

I have also tried using account, accountid, customers, regarding, as the attribute name, all which result a similar error error. Does anyone know what I should be using as the attribute name to share the account from a service activity??
