UWL standard item attributes - CreatorId and link with the task container

Dear portal specialists,

As you maybe know, for some workflows that come in the UWL, the column "From" indicates "Workflow system" as the creator of the item.

Example: A expenses is sent by an employee via ESS and falls into the UWL. The column "From" should retrieve the employee name but actually it shows "Workflow System".

My understanding so far is:

- the creator of an item in the worklist is retrieved via a standard attribute "creatorId".

- this standard attribute is defined like this in the documentation: "The user (if any) that created the item or initiated the workflow process. Is a portal user id if available".

My question is: this creatorId attribute retrieves a specific parameter within the container BUT what parameter (the exact name like for instance WfInitiator) ?

My final goal is to modify the container of every workflows that retrieve the "Workflow System" in the from column to send the correct name.

Thanks a lot in advance for your precious comments,
