    Using magic strings

    I configured a workflow to save a content node when a form is submitted. For a few document properties I used 'magic strings' to give them a value.

    • {record.IP} to get the IP address of the website visitor => this works
    • {record.UniqueId} to link the document with the original forms record => this doesn't work

    Any idea why the first magic string works but the second doesn't?

    Hi Stief,
    I think this is a bug as I was not able to get this to work.

    Have we documented that this should work or was this working previously at all or was this in Contour?

    Either way its a bug and I suggest you log an issue on the tracker if one does not already exist for this

    @Warren This is the first time I'm using Umbraco Forms, so I don't know if this worked in an earlier version. But I tried it after reading the Umbraco Forms' documentation on 'Magic strings'. It says:

    Where can I use these magic strings? These magic strings as we call them can be used in Workflows property/settings.

    I reported 2 related issues on the tracker:
