Capture the email of the person running the workflow and incorporating it into the flow

8 - Asteroid



I have an app that asks users to provide Inventory numbers and in turn it pulls up the related Master Asset Data for them. As this app is on the server, I would like it to email the results to the person asking the question. Typically the workflows ask for SAP userid to run the workflow on the server. I was hoping to capture that data, incorporate it into the workflow and email them the results. 


Is this possible? What other methods exist to get the same outcome?

If the workflow already asks for a userid, then all you need is to join this data to another table that has all the corresponding email addresses and configure the email tool. If the app does not asks for the user id, then you will need to get this information using APIs and querying the MongoDB.
