  • 1.  Using MODIFY_TASK to modify the parent workflow of a task

    The documentation page for MODIFY_TASK (v12.3, v21.0) states:
    Notes:
    • You can only stop and start other Workflows, but not the Workflow that the script itself is in.
    • You cannot use MODIFY_TASK to edit the Workflow that the script is in.

    This description is misleading. It would be more correct to state:

    • It is not possible to modify a workflow using a MODIFY_TASK statement in the workflow's own Process tab.
    • However, it is possible to modify a workflow using a MODIFY_TASK statement in the Process tab of a child task, e.g., a script (SCRI).

    Hi Michael,

    you are absolutely right. I have used MODIFY_TASK already myself very often in a SCRI to add additional tasks to the parent workflow. The documentation will be updated.
