Task References

On this page:



The assign task is used to copy the values (of all enumerable own properties) from a source object to a target object. It will return a modified target object, which has properties and values pushed from the source object. Of note, the target object is the first parameter and is also used as the return value (targetObject).

Potential Use Case

Suppose you have an ordered list of emails in a collection and you want to assign them into a numbered list. The target object and the source object will be given the numerical assignments in the final list.


Input and output properties are shown below.

Incoming Type Description
target Object Required. The target object to apply the source properties to.
sourceN Object Required. The source object containing the properties to copy.

Outgoing Type Description
targetObject Object The target object.


In the IAP example below:

  • Property "a" has been assigned the value of "1" in the target object.

  • Property "b" has been assigned the value of "2" in the sourceN object.


  • The source object "b:2" is copied to the target object and the targetObject returns the combined variables of "a":1,"b":2.
