Approvals Via Web Services - Approval Comments issue



I have setup a scenario that allows users to approve service catalog requests via web services.  My only issue is the approval comments.  The requirements is users need to enter comments and they need to be transferred to the Approval records.  My initial solution was to add a field to the incidents table to store the comments then use a macro evalexpression to initialize the Approval table and comments from the interaction to the Approval.   The only flaw with this is the comments never make it to the ApprovalLog record.  My assumption is that the ApprovalLog record is created before the macro is called but I can't validate that.  Does anyone know how or when the ApprovalLog records are created?  I think if I know that, I can come up with a solution but until then I am stuck!


Thanks so much!

The approval.approve RAD Application is designed to handle comments for processes running in the background (e.g. Web Services).


RAD Application: approval.approve

Panel: set.comments

Expressions (relevant):

  if $ then ($L.comments=$INTO.COMMENTS))
  if ($L.action="approve") then (comments in $L.approval={str(tod())+" <"+scmsg(12, "approval")+"> -- "+operator()}+$L.comments+nullsub(comments in $L.approval, {}))


NOTE: $INTO.COMMENTS is the array of comments passed into the approval.approve RAD Application.
