Add user to Participant list


I am trying to find solution to add some user as a Participant but not update all list. I am going to provide example:

1.) I use field Approver in issue which always store information about one user who is Approver

2.) In some WF transition I require action from Approver

3.) I copied value from field Approver to Request Participants in post function to allow see issue on Customer Portal for Approver

Where is the problem?

Request participants field is multi picker field. If stores for example users x, y, z and next post function copy value b from field Approver it finally stores only b value instead of x,y,z and b.


Do you have some idea?

The copy-value function is not cumulative - it overwrites the list in a field with what was in another.

You'll need to find/write a post-function that reads the current list and adds a the user named in approver to it.

You might try: Copy value...image2016-8-23 9:39:15.png

and use the Add source values option...

I didn't test it but it might work for you.

Thanks for quick response.

Just to clarify- you mean about script workflow function?
