Issue

Workflow Error on mail event after deployment on new update with error System.Object[]' cannot be converted to type 'System.String[]

Symptoms

Workflow goes into error state on mail event.

Resolution

This is a known issue and will be fixed in an upcoming update for Appit.

Workaround: Use the Name property instead, this will return the K2 FQN, meaning it will look like this AAD:User@someplace.com. Then use the inline functions to replace the AAD: with an empty string to strip it down to an email address.
