While Event references provide context-sensitive value references to the current event, you will sometimes need to access more specific information relating to the current state – attribute references allow you to do this.

For example, in a multi-review state, you might want to access information about each of the reviews, or a specific review, not just the most recently updated review.

A similar situation might arise for tasks, where you might want information about more than one task in an event that relates to a single task (or an event that does not relate to tasks at all).


You can access attributes from any Content review associated with the current workflow state by using a value reference in the form:

@ApprovalName > AttributeName@

For example, if you wanted the comment of the last approver of the "Technical" content review, you would use:

@Technical > approvalcomment@
