I have some OG groups in my site. Each group is an online classroom.

The membership has a few fields (I use the default membership), and one of those fields is a select field with "approved" or "not approved" information about each student's final exam.

I would like to use rules to send an email to each student that change that OG membership field status to "approved". I want this workflow only for users of "exchange-student" role.

But I cannot do that because it seems that I didn't fetched the OG membership. I don't know what I'm doing wrong here.

This is my Rule:


After updating an existing og membership


Entity exists by property (Parameter: Entity type: OG membership, Property: Exam, Value: Approved)

User has Role (Parameter: User: [site:current-user], Roles: exchange-student)

Action: Send a message (Parameter: Receptáculo: [site:current-user], Private message author: [site:current-user], Private message subject: Aprobaste, Private message body: Mensaje de Prueba)

What am I doing wrong? What am I missing?

Thanks for your help.

I believe the answer lies in your Conditions.

You are checking whether the current user has the appropriate role.

See if you can find a token for the user whose membership has been changed.

  • Hi there! Thanks for your answer. I suspected about the current-user condition, but I have no way to select the membership of the user that has been changed. Maybe adding a different event (?) in order to make available new conditions...?

  • I haven't worked with OG so I'm afraid I can't help any more than that.
