Description Tina Fitzgerald 2018-04-20 16:53:16 UTC
Description of problem:
Automate relies heavily on object substitution. 

Double slashes can cause issues when object substitution in relationship paths as shown below:
Path example: /{/#a}/{/#b}/{/#c}/{/#d}
before: if {/#a} is nil, path becomes //b/c/d which is invalid
after: if {/#a} is nil, path becomes /b/c/d which is valid(*if b/c/d exists)
