  • 1.  Prompt set job never activates

    Posted May 01, 2018 05:05 AM



    Can somebody please validate this ..


    Version Automic Web Interface 12.1.0.HF02-dev-feature-12.1.0-HF02-67568


    When I have a promptset with a multi select checkbox and a variable name of length < 26 characters then the promptset and job work ok. e.g. &A1234567890123456789012#


    When this variable gets longer than 25 characters the prompset activates but once submitted the job is stuck in 'Generating' and never seems to activate ...


    Hope this makes sense...

    Ah I see from your screenshot you have array selected. From the documentation:


    Unlike script variables the name of arrays may be up to 24 alphanumeric characters long.

    Cheers for this Michael.


    I am positive this same code/objects worked on our dev/training environment where the version number was


    Automic Web Interface 12.0.0.HF03-346


    Thanks for looking into this for me though ... I will amend the variable name ...
