CurrentUser object in Serverside Code

The CurrentUser object can be used in all serverside code including Create Scripts, Validation scripts, Table Level scripts and Workflow javascript conditions.

It provides information about the current user session.

You can list the properties of the CurrentUser object by using this snippet of code in any Create Script.

Valid = false;
ErrorStr ='';
var recCaption
var x
for (x in CurrentUser)
recCaption = eWare.FindRecord("custom_captions","capt_code = '"+x+"'");
ErrorStr += x +' ('+recCaption.capt_us+'): '+CurrentUser[x]+'

We can see the result:

  • Hi Jeff,

    I have a problem inside javascript condition of the workflow.

    I am giving the following condition to validate the path of the workflow but the validation is not happening and neither is it giving me any error.

    Valid=(case_warrantyenddate <= '#T');[Also tried without single quotes i.e. #T]

    But when I click on Change Button for case and save it again without even changing a single field the action button is appearing and the validation is also happening.But again when I click on the case top content the case summary page refreshes and the action button disappears.

    Kindly help me on this.
