Tricky - have you been given access to the mashup documentation by support?
Yes. It has a good example of how to add a child incident but not of how to create a new collection item. The other thing I was toying with was just creating a new object of type Autosys Interested Party and at that time adding the incident guid, but (a) that feels like cheating and (b) it doesn't create the history in the Incident.
If I can't figure it out I'll probably just use Event Manager, but I find that more complicated to set up.
You may need to include the lifecycle name.. it may not automatically pick up.
Great tip, Stu!
For the record, here's the syntax that works.
I was going about it all wrong. Rather than reference an incident and create its child objects, the new code creates the collection item and then pulls in the Incident as a parent object. I also see the convention of using parent_ and child_ in the attribute names.
Glad it was nice and easy to figure out. I love it when a plan comes together!
