invalid cross reference id using process builder

Hi All,

Based on the Lead status I am trying to update the lead owner to a queue using the process builder. When my process builder has been pushed to different org I am getting error as below.
Error: The flow tried to update these records: null. This error occurred: INVALID_CROSS_REFERENCE_KEY: invalid cross reference id.

My Action field update is Lead owner(field) Queue(Type) xxx_Queue(Value)

I ran into a similar issue when deploying a process that posts to a chatter group. What seems to be happening is when you develop the process in a sandbox you are providing the name of the group or queue and the process builder links it to the internal ID behind the scenes. Unfortunately the IDs are typically different in your dev org and production org.

To fix this, after you deploy, you will need to modify the process (clone) in the production org and re-link the queue by name in the prod org so it gets the proper ID. When you activate the cloned version, it should work as expected.

Thanks Doug, I have placed the Id in the label and changing the id after the push and it works for me
