How to assign task to the group from a variable in Workflow

Jump to solution

This is one workflow in which I want to assign the task to the group depending on the condition, So in the initial check I am getting that condition true or false based on that I have also assigned group names to one variable "wf142_grouprevisor" but now I want to pass that variable name in the activiti:candidateGroups="${wf142_grouprevisor.properties.Name}" .   I have tried the below code but it is not working means it is not taking the group name from the variable.. Can anyone help me in this issue.

 

Thanks in Advance..

var nodes = search.luceneSearch("@\\{http\\://www.bpost.be/model/hr/1.0\\}DocumentTypesDataList @hr\\:dldocType:"+docType+"\*");
logger.error("--------Length of nodes is-------------"+nodes.length);
if(nodes.length > 0){

logger.error("------------Node is-------------"+nodes[0].id);

var dataLists = search.findNode("workspace://SpacesStore/"+nodes[0].id);
var dataListItemProps = dataLists.getProperties(); //Read all the properties of the current datalistitem

docTypeStr = dataListItemProps["hr:dldocType"]
logger.log("-----docTypeStr-------"+docTypeStr);

process = dataListItemProps["hr:dlprocess"];
logger.log("+++++Process+++++"+process);

checkSecured = dataListItemProps["hr:dlsecured"];
logger.error("-------CHECK SECURED---------"+checkSecured);
}

if(checkSecured == true){
execution.setVariable('wf142_grouprevisor',"GROUP_GU_CMS_HR_PAYROLLSECWF_TEAM");

you'll have to provide the ID of the group which your are assigning the task to in your varaible wf142_grouprevisor then simple pass the variable as expression ${wf142_grouprevisor}. Activiti cannot resolve groups based on names. FYI ${wf142_grouprevisor.properties.Name} << this type of expression can only be used if wf142_grouprevisor is an instance of ScriptNode
