Owner start workflow from workflow

    I have a simple workflow, which is started from a user in ICN. The owner of the workflow is the user. In the workflow I start another workflow. The owner of the second workflow is not the initial user, but a system-user. How do I get the initial owner also to be the owner of the second workflow? The result should be that the second workflow is in the Inbox of the initial user.

    Hi Jan,

    I have not tried this, but you might look into something like this...

    • Capture the userid on the launch step of the original workflow.
    • Pass that string over to the launched workflow (into launchUser).
    • Assign that userid to a participant group. ex: assignGroup = {launchUser}
    • Use that (assignGroup) workflow group for the participant step.

    Hope that works for you.
