Last entity record owner information in background workflow RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Devs,

    In a background workflow, upon record assign I need to determine who was the last owner of an entity record. I searched over google and this seems not available OOB, nor any discussion related to possible solutions.

    One possible solution in my mind is to create a pre-assign plugin to retain the last owner information in an entity attribute itself.

    Any other possible options around this situation?

    Best regards,

  • We do the same way as you mentioned in pre-assign plugin. I think that is most appropriate way. If you do not want to use User lookup for previous Owner you can use text field and keep on appending User name or User ID to string as and when Owner of the record get changed.
