CreateAssignmentValve

Valve for creating an Assignment.

An assignment template is required. The assignment template can be supplied in the request (using property expansion), inline in configuration or in an external file.

The assignment template support property expansion and a custom rendering context can be supplied as a JSON hash. Values in custom context will be translated/localized before rendering.

Note: the assignment template is expanded twice meaning that it is possible to provide a template containing expansion properties in the request .

The following scopes are available during template rendering:

  • item - the current item
  • request - request parameters
  • attributes - flow attributes
  • system - system properties
  • context - custom context
  • now - ISO timestamp


Supports creating assignments on a remote PhenixID server using the authentication API.
