Workflow Application: GETPROCESSDATA usage


#1

(Available since version 5.6.4.)

The GETPROCESSDATA workflow application lets you retrieve process data values of a specified request. This application is useful for inter-process communications.

As a first sub-process action, GETPROCESSDATA provides a flexible alternative to the sub-process parameters, since there are no versioning management constraints with the parent process.

####Required parameter

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

Other parameters are defined in the workflow action according to your needs.

Parameter name: The name of the remote process data to retrieve.
Receive the value into: The process data to update.

####Example
To retrieve the value of the process data COMPANY into the process data CUSTOMER_COMPANY:

Parameter name:  COMPANY
Receive the value into:  CUSTOMER_COMPANY

Process data datatypes must be same.

You may have to add an exception management to handle possible errors (e.g. invalid request ID).
