WorkItem Customization - workitem.getValue() returns a UUID

Henry Armburg Jennings (13076) | asked Nov 24 '11, 6:19 a.m.

I'm trying to write a calculated value script in javascript where I return the name of the Category attribute. But the following code returns: _O7KQEvZmEeC94ecF979KKA

How do I convert this into a human-readable string?

For reference, this is my code -



(function() {

var WorkItemAttributes=;

dojo.declare("from_default_valueProvider", null, {

getValue: function(attribute, workItem, configuration) {

var teamValue = workItem.getValue(WorkItemAttributes.FILED_AGAINST);

return teamValue;

Thanks in advance,

EMPLOYEE Work Item has a list box named "SEAT ALLOCATION" that lists all SEAT Work Items with STATUS = AVAILABLE.
I am trying to write a calculated value js to list all work items of a particular type (say SEAT work item)

Is this possible with script based
