I'm using Jbpm 3.2.6. According to documentation http://docs.jboss.com/jbpm/v3.2/userguide/html/taskmanagement.html#assignmentexpressions, it says: anonymous wrote : variable(variable-name) means the user or group is taken from the specified variable instance. The variable instance can contain a java.lang.String, in which case that user or group is fetched from the identity component

However, if I use the expression variable(variable-name) to assign a task in my process definition, and my 'variable-name' value is the name of an existing Group, an exception is thrown:
Caused by: org.jbpm.identity.assignment.ExpressionAssignmentException: couldn't resolve assignment expression 'variable(RoleToObtainQuote)'

  | 	at org.jbpm.identity.assignment.ExpressionAssignmentHandler.assign(ExpressionAssignmentHandler.java:75)

It says the USER couldn't be fetched from the DB, but according to docs, shouldn't it also look if its a GROUP? As in my case, it is a Group, and that Group does exist in the DB.

Any ideas?
