Objective

In this example I have a SmartBox SmartObject with user FQNs or Emails that are separated with a semi colon. This needs to be used in a Task Destination without concatenating it as a string.

For example:

bob@denallix.com;blake@denallix.com

How-to Steps

Here is some sample data from the SmartObject:

We need to use the email or FQN as the destination in a workflow task event.

 

Using the name might be a bit ambiguous when resolving, we suggest using something that is unique to the user like email, UPN or FQN.

In the workflow setup, the task events destination is as follows:

 

1. Make use of the OOTB Split Function in the Recipients area:

2. Configure the Split function to split the data on the semi colon:

The result will be a task per user, instead of a single destination that is concatenated.

Incorrect:

Depending on what version of K2 you have running you might need a specific codefix to get this to work.
