Jira Handlers (February 19, 2014)

Multiple Checkbox Option Events (February 4, 2014)

A Customer has a requirement to use Multiple Checkbox Values to Insert and Remove another Question. A good use for this type of functionality would be on an Application Request Service Item. A sample Service Item is created to show how this functionality can be used.

Data Management Console (February 3, 2014)

The Data Management Console uses Kinetic Request and Task functionality to allow display and easy editing of data. The “data” can consist of items that support Kinetic Request processes, or can be data that just needs a better way of being edited/reviewed.

Kinetic Helper Record Update (January 31, 2014)

A new version of the Kinetic Helper Record Update handler has been loaded on Community. This version will update the specified record regardless of it’s status. This updates a specified record with the specified values in the KS_SRV_Helper form. This can be used, in conjunction with the other helper record handlers, to store data about a service item.

Kinetic Request Submission Close All Open (January 31, 2014)

Updates the Validation Status, the status that is displayed to the end user, and sets the Request Status to “Closed” for all open requests associated with the provided originating ID. This can be helpful in situations where a request has “children”, either child request, kinetic work orders, clones or other items that have the originating ID that all need to be closed. This prevents having to use a loop to do these at the end of these workflows.
