Changing post category using $post_object field

  • //code starts, code is in function.php:
    function acf_title( $value, $post_id, $field ) {
    $post_object = get_field(‘select_user’);

    $get_firstname = get_field(‘first_name’, $post_object->ID);
    $get_lastname = get_field(‘last_name’, $post_object->ID);

    $new_title = $ get_firstname . ‘ ‘ . $ get_lastname;
    $slug = sanitize_title( $new_title);

    // update post
    wp_update_post( array(
    ‘ID’ => $post_id,
    ‘post_title’ => $new_title,
    ‘post_name’ => $slug
    ) );
    wp_update_post( $postdata );
    $value = preg_replace(‘/\s+/’, ”, $value);
    return $value;
    }
    add_filter(‘acf/update_value/name=select_user, ‘acf_title’, 10, 3);
    //code ends

    The above code changes the post title, and it works fine enough. But what is the ’proper’ way to update post category from $post_object using the above ’wp_update_post’ -array?

    $post_object gets data from custom post type ’peoples’ and that post type has the following ACF fields:
    firstname, text
    lastname, text
    birthday, date picker
    group, taxonomy

    *additional information from taxonomy field ‘group’ settings:
    Taxonomy: category
    Field Type: Select
    Allow null: no
    Load & Save Terms to Post: checked
    Return Value: checked Term ID
    Conditional Logic: no

    I can get the he category name and id to the post from the $post_object and save it using $variable in the post content itself, but i haven’t been able to change the post category ’automatically’ during the save process. Is this possible?
