candidateGroup not showing tasks

I'm new to activiti.  Running 5.14 explorer and rest. Using the KIS BPM modeler to design the worklfow.

I'm having a problem with user tasks not showing up for logged in user belonging to a group.

On a user task, I edit the assignments attribute, which brings up the popup.  I select the candidateGroups type and enter systemgroup as the expression.

If I export the mode, the task is defined like this.
<userTask id="test" name="test" activiti:candidateGroups="systemgroup"></userTask>

I'm using a user 'system' logged into explorer.  That user is part of the systemgroup which is of type 'assignment'.

When I create the process instance, the task never shows up in the task list.

If I use the assignee type instead of candidateGroups, the task will show up.
<userTask id="test" name="test" activiti:assignee="system"></userTask>

Does the candidateGroups require a different expression than assignee?  Is there something else I need to configure to get this to work?
