Cannot access the ClientPartyType field from Documate

I’ve seen similar questions asked, and have tried similar troubleshooting tips to no avail.

I have a zap trigger set up to create a Clio Matter when a Documate workflow is finished.
I am trying to set up paths so that if the Client is the Plaintiff, it will follow one path, but if the Client is the Respondent, it will follow the other.  I cannot get the paths set up, because it is not loading the variable that tells us what the ClientPartyType is.  


Can you please help me figure out why it is not loading this variable.  (I am doing work for a client using another account, so the zap is in their account.)


Thank you,

Hi - In the source is the ClientPartyType field populated. This seems obvious but I have had cases in the past where I have found that a field wasn’t visible at first because the field I was looking for had no data on my first test in the source data (even though I would have expected it to have been populated).

Hi @VirtualPro 

Good question.

Make sure to test with a representative example that has data for the field.

Some apps won’t return variables if the value is null/empty/blank.
