Create a Case/Switch using Automation

Dirk Ronsmans Community Leader Jul 05, 2021

I'm exploring the options with Automation and while we do have the IF/Else block I don't think that we have something like a Case/Switch.

My use case would be a way to have a single field tested against several values but only execute the block of actions of the value found and not test anything else anymore.

In script this would mean you add a break in your case but nothing like that exists in Automation.

Anybody got some suggestions on how to mimic the behavior of a case where we can exit the actions block when the value is matched?

Hey @Dirk Ronsmans , just following up on this oldie-but-goodie:

There's an open feature suggestion for case blocks at JRACLOUD-74958 . Take a look and add your vote if this sounds like it would work for your use-case.

Hey @Daniel Eads ,

Thanks for the feedback! Definitely looks like what I had in mind back then :)

Appreciate the followup!
