  • 1.  Recuring workflow triggering Promptset

    Posted 12-20-2018 11:12 AM

    Dear Community,

    I try to implement a fuctionionallity to watch a directory for files and if a new file pops up i want to start a call to some logged in users and ask back if the processing of the file should start. To process the file i need some more additional information which I want to read via promptset and push to a second workflow started from the first workflow via activate_uc_object.


    As i designed the process i kept logged in and anything worked fine but after new login the object with the promptset doesn't start with fault_other - user with session not found. From documentation I got the hint that the user started the prozess need to be same with same session.



    Event -> Call (Request to 4 users) -> Script (activate Workflow2)



    PromptSet -> Data-Processing


    Is there any way how i can have a recuring planed workflow watch a direction and get a promptset for a different user logged in other than the user planned the workflow?

    I wonder if the script in Workflow1 could use a :READ command to prompt for the desired user input, and then pass that value to Workflow2?



    EDIT: I fear this idea might have the same issue.

    usually if an object gets started by another object and not the user itself the PRPT or READ won't pop up.


    So in my opinion you have following possibilities:


    A) get the CALL object and start teh workflow (with PRPT or :READ) manually

    B) let the CALL call the workflow with some defaults (if possible)


    cheers, Wolfgang

    I would use a VARA where I will fill in the data from WF1 so that when WF2 starts to read the data first from this VARA and then proceed further.
