Prepopulate rule with access as the target?

Any help would be appreciated. I'm trying to use a prepopluate rule to change the access status to not accessible to the public. I can get this rule to prepopulate other fields, just not access and I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. I've also tried template= 0 and template= internal_only

status_rule = {
    # what types of records does this rule apply to?
    table = ca_objects,
    restrictToTypes = [audio_event],

    # mode determines handling of existing values in target element
    # can be overwrite, or addIfEmpty
    # See the 'target' setting below and http://docs.collectiveaccess.org/wiki/Prepopulate
    mode = overwrite,

    # What's the prepopulate target?
    # This can be an intrinsic field, labels or an attribute.
    #
    # Note that if you want to target a List attribute, you have to
    # provide a valid list item idno or id for that list as value!
    #
    # See http://docs.collectiveaccess.org/wiki/Prepopulate
    target = ca_objects.access,

    # skip this rule if expression returns true
    # available variable names are bundle names
    skipIfExpression = ^ca_objects.workflow_status !~ /pending/,

    # content to prepopulate
    # (this is a display template evaluated against the current record)
    template = 56,
},
