In activity, user tried in two ways to create case:

1. User called pxcreateTopcase activity to create case.

2.User called "CreateAppeal" flow in that they used "CreateCase" smart shape to create case.

In both ways, case is getting created properly and if they try to open assignment they are getting error like "Unable to open assign-worklist using given input: error is coming. "
