What is the correct way to reference XL Release users within variables?
I have a User Input task in the main release to fill in the users per role. Those variables are then passed to a sub-release created by the main release.
In both releases, the variables are assigned to teams, and the teams are assigned to tasks.
However, entering username, email address, and plain name in the variables don't seem to be recognized as actual users, just text.
I'm trying to use variables to pass role assignments from a main release to a sub-release it creates. For example, if the "Test Manager" role includes "John" in the main release, the corresponding "Test Manager" role in the sub-release would also include "John". And the user "John" would be able to use My Tasks in the same manner is if he were manually added to the "Test Manager" teams, i.e. filter on tasks assigned to My Teams.
