Is there a way, native or with a workaround, that a user can upload a file through the Portal?
We would ideally like to trigger a Javelin workflow to read through a user-submitted text, CSV or Excel file.
Have you looked at the Javelin examples? Visual Flow Examples
In the examples that are attached, there is a ReadFileContent.vwf. This should provide you an example.
Thanks for providing the Javelin workflow. As the workflow is looking for a file path on the server on which it is installed, I'm wondering if it is possible for the user to submit a file through the Portal?
As far as I know this is not possible and no good WA. You can ask the users to place the file in a shared drive and have them enter the file path in the portal and use Javelin to access the file.
But I think this could nice enhancement. Basically what we are looking is to have a variable type "File" which should open up the file explorer to Browse and Import. I think you can open up an Idea.
