Automatic creation of requests 2

Hi,

 

I"m looking for a solution to my problem.I have read through the forum for a similar post and I can see one,but that particular thread does not answer my question.

 

My problem is : i have a request type A that spawns a new request type B.At the close of request type A , users are required to fill in  what category of request type B they want to create( a choice of three request types).I know there is a request step that comes standard but the problem with this step is that is a manual step and my requirement is that from request type A,the request should create the relevant request type B automatically.

 

What i'm asking is how to create a custom command to do this.I just need the code for the same.I have played around but nothing seems to work.i'm running on 9.12.

 

Thanks.

You can use the special command ksc_copy_request to create the child request. It is documented in the Commands, Tokens, and Validations Guide and Reference.

You could also use a Demand Web Service to create requests. 

From your workflow step you could executre a command that would inititate a web service - there you could specify any parameter you want (Request Type for example).

 

To use web services you need to have Java or .NET skills though.
