Case management: add a new 're-opened' state

Technical approach  implemented as follows:

-Added a new sys choice on State field of Case table labelled as 'Re-Opened' and with value of '2'.

-Created a new Customer Service Case Flow called 'Re-Open Case', which is responsible for the transition of state from 'Resolved' to 'Re-Opened'.

-De-activated OOB button called: 'Open Case'.

-Created a new button called: 'Re-Open Case', which will carry out the state transition specified in the new Customer Service Case Flow, as mentioned in step no. 2 above.

-Updated the existing flow formatter [sys_process_flow] called: 'Assigned' by modifying the condition field to cater for the 'Re-Opened' state as well as the 'Assigned' one, i.e. State=Assigned OR State=Re-Opened.

-Finally, updated the client script called: 'Hide Options From State Field' to hide the 'Re-Opened' state value from the drop-down list when the current state is NOT Re-Opened.

reopened correlates to 'assigned' in the flow formatter:

GlideRecord setValue

setValue(String name, Object value) Sets the specified field to the specified value. Normally a script would do a direct assignment, for example,  gr.category = value . However, if in a script the element name is a variable, then  gr.setValue(elementName, value)  can be used. When setting a value, ensure the data type of the field matches the data type of the value you enter. This method cannot be used on journal fields. If the value parameter is null, the record is not updated, and an error is not thrown!/api_doc?v=madrid&id=r_GlideRecord-setValue_String_Object
