only those existing field values that are contained in the specified (collection of) values.
In other words, removes those existing values, that are not contained in the specified (collection of) values.
The value(s) to apply can be
(a constant) Value, that you can enter/select via the appropriate value editor, or
the Content of an assignment compatible field from the tracker item, that is source/subject of the triggering event, or
the Result of evaluating an expression (on the tracker item, that is source/subject of the triggering event), that computes/calculates the value (see Calculated Issue Fields).

Please make sure, that you have committed all open field value editors with OK, before you save the action, otherwise the uncommittededitor values will get lost.
In CB-7.9.2 and newer, you can also apply multiple value update operations on parameters and fields, that allow multiple values.
Assign the item to all Owners, except those having role Tester
Assigned to: Set to content of Owner, Remove Tester
Assign the item to all Owners, plus user bond
Assigned to: Set to content of Owner, Add bond
Remove all assignees in role Developer and newly assign users in role Tester
Assigned to: Remove Developer, Add Tester
There can be also constellations with three or more operations, e.g.
Assign the item to all Owners, that have the role Administrator, except members of group System Admin
Assigned to: Set to content of Owner, Retain Administrator, Remove System Admin
To add additional field value update operations, click on the More... button of the field update editor.
To Remove additional field value update operations:
Right click the field value update operation and choose Remove from the context menu.
Because the order of operations is significant, you can re-order additional field value update operations via drag-and-drop (in edit mode).
This feature is available from version 9.5
This section of the workflow action configuration is available only for Create and Update referring item actions. The two options:
Open Editor: by default the workflow action creates or updates a referring item and then updates the status of the original item. If this option is checked then the referring item is not updated/created automatically. Instead codeBeamer shows the editor page prepopulated with all the field values that the user specified in the workflow action definition. If the user clicks on save on this editor page then the referring item is created/updated and the status of the original item is updated. If the user clicks on cancel on the editor then the transition is not executed, meaning that the referring item is not created/updated and the status of the original item is not updated.
Switch to Referring Item: if this option is checked then after the referring item was created/updated by the action the new item page is loaded in the browser.
