(Available since version 5.6.4.)
The GETFORMDATA workflow application allows you to retrieve form field values of a specified request.
This application is useful when you need to retrieve form data which are not mapped to process data.
|REQUEST_ID||Numeric||IN||The request ID that contains the process data to retrieve|
|FORM_DATA_NAME||Text||IN||The process data name that contains the form data to query. GETFORMDATA uses the "FORM_DATA" process data name by default.|
Other parameters are defined in the workflow action according to your needs. The parameter name is the full ID of the form field full (e.g. REQUEST_AMOUNT). The value is received into the process data to update.
To retrieve the value of the form field REQUEST_COMPANY into the process data CUSTOMER_COMPANY:
Parameter name: REQUEST_COMPANY
Receive the value into: CUSTOMER_COMPANY
Process data and form field datatypes must to be same.
You may have to add an exception management to handle possible errors (e.g. an invalid request ID).
