We want to update the user details who perform the specific transition in the workflow into  a custom field. I don't see any post function that support this . Is there anyway that we achieve this?

Hi @Ravi Kumar Boddu,

With the update custom field post function you can edit the custom field you have probably created for this and use '%%CURRENT_USER%%' to fill out the user performing the transition.

Hope this helps!

Thanks for the details, this doesn't allow to compare the existing value before updating the field.
