    workflow creation

    Voke Apprentice

      Hi

      Please can someone assist me with this workflow

       

      We have an issue Area with different ServiceCI. Want to create an Incident with the Area(issue) then the user select the service affected but only want it to show just the service  related not all ServiceCI then base on the Service selected it should assign to a Team.

       

      Created a Business Object called Area and linked the service.

      Created an Incident layout but when I selected the Area the Service option shows All

      Currently stuck at this point.

      I also created a Pick List.

          Hi Voke

           

          What you need to do is copy this from the Incident object between Service and category, it is the same as the function you are trying to create form your description:

           

           

          On the pick list it will only display categories associated to the service selected, it is using the form field function [ValidationList] if using in a Service request you need to substitute using the {0} syntax and specify a cascading constraint in the request offering field/validation list setup.

           

          If you get stuck shout here.

            Hi

            I tried what you said but i got stuck, i am using ISM 2018.1

             

            Please see what i have done so far

             

            Create a Business Object called Area and related relationship, form and Layout.

            On the Incident Object created the field called Area and AreaService and Picklist

              Hi Voke

               

              the second picklist you want to use for the Areaservice must point to the CI.Service Business Object. In the constraints you configure it like this:

               

              [Area#.AreaAssocCIService]Area] EQUAL TO [ValidationList]Area

               

              I cannot see the exact name of the field "Area" in the Area Business Object and neither of the field "Area" in the Incident Business Object. You might want to change that accordingly.

               

              I hope that helped.

               

              Kind regards

                  Hello Voke.

                   

                  Please make a correction to your picklist's constraint:

                   

                  [Area#.AreaRev1]Area EQUAL TO $([ValidationList]Area)

                   

                  Especially on the left side you need to refer to all the linked Areas, hence pointing to the Area object and not the CI#Service.

                   

                  Kind regards

                      Hi Voke,

                       

                      now you mixed it up

                       

                      That's what it should look like:
