Site Defined Condition to Identify User Access Type

  • 1.  Site Defined Condition to Identify User Access Type

    I would like to introduce a site defined condition to prevent problems from transitioning to closed without a certain access type being applied to the currently logged in user.

    For Example roughly site defined condition:

    user.access_type.sym = "Analyst MGR"

    How is this accomplished?

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    #sitedefinedcondition
    #spelcode

    Hello,

    Code of macro:

    uuid who;
    object zaccess;

    send_wait(0,top_object(), "call_attr", "cnt", "current_user_id");
    who=msg[0];

    send_wait(0, top_object(), "call_attr", "api", "get_access_for_contact", (string)who);
    if (msg_error()) {
    logf(ERROR, "get_access_for_contact failed %s",msg[0]);
    }
    else
    {
    zaccess = msg[0];
    logf(SIGNIFICANT, "access: %s",zaccess.sym);
    }
    if (zaccess.sym=="Analyst MGR") {
    set_return_data(TRUE);
    } else {
    set_return_data(FALSE);
    }

    Question, instead of returning true or false is there a way to provide just the access_type value so that way we can observe that rather than hardcoding it in?

    Of course you can check id of access type if you like.
    Please explain in more detail what do you mean by:
     provide just the access_type value so that way we can observe

    in a site defined condition you can set it up so that you can observe the value of an attribute. is there a way to expose this attribute so rather than having a hard coded value in a spel script we have the ability to configure the value and re-use this if need be in other places.

    If I understood correctly you want to set this access type from user interface.
    You can create in some object for example status custom attribute zaccess_type and add this field to status form.
    After that you can get this status in condition macro with dob_by_persid method and use in check.
    That way you can also get this access type in custom spell methods.
