It would really be nice if custom fields added to a service item in the service catalog could be a selection in dispatch'r and observer within the condition.
Essentially adding another selection box next to ticket field and requester field to be "service item field"? See image below
another possible idea is the initial selection on dispatch'r or observer on which lifecycle to ad this rule to? Maybe add-in "service request" to separate them?
I very badly need this to happen. Our intention was to create a service catalog item for our employee onboard process. Everything worked great until I needed to send an email with some of the details to a distribution group - I can't get them access to those details no matter what I do. I basically have to scrap the entire idea of using the Service Catalog as a result.
You can do that in the product as shown below. Hope this helps.
@Nicholas: you can use the newly introduce placeholders for custom fields.
Let me know of that works for you.
