Arguments

Workflow Engine function assignAlert takes the following arguments:

Name

Required

Type

Description

user

Yes

String

ID or username of the user to assign as owner. To specify a workflowContext key, prefix with "workflowContext." For example, "workflowContext.username"

Example

The following example demonstrates typical use of Workflow Engine function assignAlert.

To assign all in-scope alerts to the user "support", Set the following:

  • user: support

The UI translates your settings to the following JSON:

{"user":"support"}

A more likely scenario is where a previous action has identified an appropriate user and populated a workflowContext key, “username”. Here, the following arguments assign the in-scope alerts to the username stored in that key:

{"user":"workflowContext.username"}

In either scenario, if the function is able to assign at least one alert to the user, it returns true.
