GETFORMDATA Workflow Application
The GETFORMDATA workflow application lets you retrieve form field values for a specified request. It is useful when you need to retrieve form data which is not mapped to process data.
GETFORMDATA can only be used with TEXT, NUMERIC, and DATETIME type fields and data.
The required parameter is
REQUEST_ID(IN, numeric), which is the request ID that contains the process data to retrieve.
The optional parameter is
FORM_DATA_NAME(IN, text), which is the process data name that contains the form data to query. By default, GETFORMDATA uses the
FORM_DATAprocess data name.
The other parameters are defined in the workflow action according to your needs:
- Parameter name: The form field full ID (e.g.
- Receive value into: The process data to update
To retrieve the value of the
REQUEST_COMPANYform field into the
CUSTOMER_COMPANYprocess data , the process data and the field data types must be the same. You may have to add an exception management to handle possible errors (e.g. invalid request ID).
