Pass Value of A1 to A2 - Clarity Process/Workflow Limitation or GEL Opportunity?

Update the value of out of the box attributes, A2 - Planned Operating Cost [planned_cst_operating_total]

with the result of custom calculated attribute, A1 - Total Operating Request [cdhs_tot_operrq]


Clarity Workflow Limitation

Object: thisProject

Auto-start Event: Update

Start Condition Expression: project.cdhs_total_projc != project.cdhs_total_projc__oldValue

Evaluated Expression: Project Total Project Costs != Project Total Project Costs [Previous Value]

Start Step Action: System Action

Action: Set Planned Operating Cost

Issue: Clarity workflow only allows entry for a static number, not a lookup reference to another attribute on set object. I would have bet on a second lookup, but expectations fell short.


Am I missing something?  I wanted to open a CA Support enhancement ticket, but I trust that I am not the first to find a dead end here.


Do I need to put on my GEL hat to update the value of A2 from A1?
