Set Specification Owner

The Set Specification Owner Task will set the owner of the specification to the assigned user.

The Owner User Name assigned in this Task must be a member of the Team applied to Specification Flow Security.

Specification Behavior

The Specification Owner is the last user (the user logged into the DriveWorks module) to modify the Specification.

When DriveWorks Autopilot processes a Specification the owner will change to the login allocated to DriveWorks Autopilot.

This could cause issues further down the life of a Specification (for example: when the login for Autopilot is in a Team with different permissions to access a Specification).

To reapply the required Owner Name to the Specification use this Task on the Leave Event of the Automatic State.

We recommend driving a Constant with the user name to be applied to the Specification Owner. See How To: Set Current User Special Variables When Using DriveWorks Autopilot for more information.

This Constant (driven only when the Specification is in a Running State) would then be used for the Owner User Name property of this Task.
