Winter '21 (v1.25)

The latest version of the Value Stream Mapping package includes a new field, Operator, that needs to be populated with the API name of a user reference field (e.g. OwnerId or CreatedById).

If you create a new value stream map, select an option from the drop-down menu:

  • If the primary object selected for the value stream map is a parent or main object, select Owner ID.
  • If the primary object selected for the value stream map is a child object, select Created By ID.

To get existing Value Stream Map records updated, execute the below script in the Developer Console:

List<copadovsm__Value_Stream_Map__c> valueStreamMaps = [SELECT Id, copadovsm__Operator_Field__c FROM copadovsm__Value_Stream_Map__c];
for(copadovsm__Value_Stream_Map__c vsm : valueStreamMaps){
vsm.copadovsm__Operator_Field__c = 'OwnerId';
update valueStreamMaps;
