Workflow Application: GETFORMDATA usage


#1

(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.

####Required parameter

Parameter                                    Type       Direction Description
REQUEST_ID Numeric IN The request ID that contains the process data to retrieve

####Optional parameter

Parameter                                    Type       Direction Description
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.

####Example
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).
