Hi



A quick note to all the participants on this topic.



If you're wanting to take any of the UserID fields and convert them to something meaningful, like first/last name, email, or login, then you can use our recently released UserLookup component.

Ok I have a question -

I have created a two variables and two text fields in my render service called userIDname and testValue. when I render the form for the firt time teh userIDname gets prepopulated which is fine. when I go to the next stage I want the testValue to be populated with the second stages users value...if I furthu g to the third stage the testValue shoul have the user who loogied in the third stage.

So what I have done is I have added another setvalue (which goes to the second time route)  to the render service and said - processdata/xmldata/fform/testValue = processdata/currentuser (current user is the variable) .

I get the same value always (originator valuve) irrespective of which stage i am in ..in the testValue box. but what I need is the current user info.

how can this be done?

Thansk for ur help!

Hi

If you go to the Default Render process, you will see a process variable (defined as an input) called: assignedUserId

This is the variable that contains the ID of the current user.

You will need to use UserLookup step to convert this internal UserID into other information about the user.

You can either use Adobe's Lookup User, or Avoka's.
