Why can I only assign "Unassigned" to "Owned By" field as a Script Based Calculated Value?

Franca Zober (155) | asked May 06 '21, 10:51 a.m.

my "Owned By" field is to be fed from a Script Based Calculated Value.

When returning a string with the UUID from "Unassigned" ("_YNh4MOlsEdq4xpiOKg5hvA"), it works perfectly well, the owner of the item changes to unassigned. If I return a string with  the UUID from any other users, the item owner does not change.

I am researching my UUID with another script using workItem.getValue(WorkItemAttributes.OWNER); so I am pretty confident the UUID as such is correct.

Anyone with a clue why this isn't working?

this works for me. I used the script below and it worked immediately. I got the ID from the user profile.

/ dojo.provide("com.example.ValueProvider");

(function() { dojo.declare("com.example.ValueProvider", null, {

    getValue: function(attribute, workItem, configuration) {

        //return workItem.getValue(attribute);
        return "_cc14oFplEeuac-qhIXDu1Q";
