Hi All,

I have created the operationParticipant by using the createworkItem2() method. But after state change of workitem It is not generating workitem automatically. Here is my code :

if (state.equals(Inprogress))
                                IProcessServerService processServerService = getService(IProcessServerService.class); ;

                                IWorkItemServer workItemServer =(IWorkItemServer) getService(IWorkItemServer.class);

                                String Pa = newWorkItem.getProjectArea().toString();
                                IProjectArea projectArea = (IProjectArea)processServerService.findProcessArea(Pa, null);
                                String WItype = newWorkItem.getWorkItemType();
                                IWorkItemType workItemType = workItemServer.findCachedWorkItemType(projectArea, WItype);

                                IWorkItem workItem = workItemServer.createWorkItem2(workItemType);

                                // Set the Attributes of Task work item.

                                workItem.setHTMLSummary(XMLString.createFromPlainText("Automatic WI"));


                                workItemServer.saveWorkItem3(workItem, null, null, null);

With the initial glance, the difference is that I am using SaveWorkItem2 functional. apart from that same logic as yours. Should work.
