Making a generic template

#1

So I have a general tomcat release template that I’ve created. But one area that does not appear to be ‘generalizable’ is task assignments. Am I missing something or is there a way to do that?

Thanks

Hi Kelly, you can use variables in task assignments.

Does this help you?

Cheers,

Sorry I tried this out.

In the task Assigned To: It has a drop down, but instead I try to over-write that by entering a variable and it fails. Is there some other way that this is done?

Hi Kelly,

What sort of fail are you seeing? I can make task assignments as a text type in both global and release variables. I use the username property of an existing user.

Sorry what I meant was I can’t enter a variable in the Assigned To: field

Ah I think I see. You must be using the team field

Yeah, it appears that variables can only be added to the user field. I’m not sure why that is. I’ll check on that.

Hi Kelly,

Adding variable capability to the team field is on the list for improvements.
