Project workflow / Post-Functions


I want to automize my Workflow. These is one feature wich can help me with is but I can`t find approach with it:)
Its about collaboration of transition to status and post function at custom fields (CF).

I`ve created status "Reviewed" (transition from status "Code Review") and CF "Reviewers" (User Picker (multiple users)).

The main goal is autofilling this field with the name of user when he doing the transition.

Moreover, there is a special macros:


But it doesn`t work.

Has someone the same issue or a way to fix this issue?

Hi @Hlib Zhurakovskyi ,

welcome to the community. Try to setup %%CURRENT_USER%% and not '%%CURRENT_USER%%' (with single quotes) on the custom field value. This should fix your issue.


I`ve tried %%CURRENT_USER%%, '%%CURRENT_USER%%' and %%%%CURRENT_USER%%%%. Found this variations on the web.

Did u fix your issue?

Unfortunately, no

Hi @Hlib Zhurakovskyi ,

I just tested my solution in my dev environment and it works!

Please verify that you checked "Append value"



Oh, nice, it works.

Now what macro should i use to add current user instead replace?

Thanks for your help BTW!!

The user that will perform the action will be added to that field.

Please, accept my answer so that this question is marked as solved.

what is the name of that post function?

Goodness, pleasant, it works.

Presently what full scale would it be advisable for me to use to add current client rather supplant?

A debt of gratitude is in order for your assistance BTW!!

Hi @Malik Waqas ,

happy that it helped! If you check append, user will be added to the list without removing previous users.
