Get collection items from entity not related to the current case

I would like to copy collection items (parameter values) from a past case into the current case.

The past (closed) case is the same template and datamodel as the current case doing the copying.

The data model is

ProcessEntity ----------*>Collection-------->Parameter

I have tried various functions (entity-list, getEntityAttrib, etc) without success.

Dear Mike,

It is common to require access to Parameter and System entities that are not related to the data model, in order to extract information and use in Xpath expressions.

In such cases, where the entities cannot be accessed directly through Xpath navigation, the entity-list function is employed. The information returned by entity-list is handled as a collection of items. You need to iterate over the collection to access specific information (i.e. the item values).
