Script for Task update in change order

  • 1.  Script for Task update in change order

    Posted 05-06-2015 09:55 AM

    Hi all,

     

    we are having a problem with some change status that should update task status automatically (like CL state) that are not working and all task stay in last status before Canceling the change. We are looking a way to run a script or something to update the task status of a specific change number. Is there any way to do it or any work around?

    The only we have thought is extracting the tables related to the workflow and updating the status manually.

     

    Please if anyone knows  any other solution will be great!!

     

    Thanks a lot.

     

    Hernan.

    hi,

    could you provide more information, which activity should initiate your script and what status you're planning to achieve?

    There is some limitations in Workflow Task object, as I remember there is no way to update OOTB fields when task is completed or you cant manualy assign PEND status. If you try scripts will end with error.

    Basicly all of object modification can be achieved via checkout / checkin method or via SET_VAL method if you're running macro directly from object.

    Hi cdtj,

     

    What i'm trying to achieve is updating any task field running a command line script, that script could be initiated manually. What i have tried is extracting the Workflow_task table and done some modifications manually and the uploaded those changes with pdm_userload command, but it takes me a lot of time. I haven't came across with any error running that command.

    Sorry, but what are those checkout / checkin methods?

     

    Did i explaine myself right this time? let me know.

     

    Thanks.

    You need to change status to canceled this will cancel all workflow task, after that you can close change

    Then you can execute spl script using  bop_cmd command, or simply write java or .net application that will use webservices or rest api to change wf statuses
