Is there any option to search issues using assignee name?

I am using Jira JQL search API to get issues list using “Assignee name”, is this possible using this API?
<my atlassian domain>+"/rest/api/3/search",
Currently getting error like:

"errorMessages": [
        "Field 'assignee' does not exist or this field cannot be viewed by anonymous users."

in query passed → "assignee~“khushal”,
Please provide suggestion,

Are you authenticated when you do the search? (The error message seems to indicate that you’re either not authenticated or the admin has disabled your access to searching on - not sure if they can do the latter ).

If you’re authenticated on the call - make sure that user can perform the check in the jira advanced search.

In cloud the username would be their email address or their full name.
