Assigning multiple requests to a user


#1

Is there a way to assign multiple requests to a user?
We have a group with a view of all their requests and they would like to select a group of 10 or 20 requests and assign them to a user to work on at one time.
Is there already functionality for this or would this take some custom design work?

Hi Claude,

This feature is not available in WorkflowGen.
Like you said, a custom solution can be implemented using either the SOAP API or GraphQL.

Eddy,

Can you point me to the documentation for either of those and any examples?

Thanks,
Claude

Hi Claude,

Using the API:

Using GraphQL:

The following example assigns request number 1234, action number 2 to User 5678.
5678 represents the user identifier of the person assigned to the action.

Finally, the returned value will be the username of the person assigned to the action.

mutation{
  assignAction(input: {requestNumber:1234, number:2 assigneeId:"5678"}){
    action{
      assignee{
        userName
      }
    }
  }
}

Regards,
Eddy.

Eddy,

Is there an api for getting a view?
I will have the view name and would like to get the listing of what is in the view.

Thanks,
Claude

Hi Claude,

Yes, you can retrieve the desired views using the method GetViewList:
