#1

(Available since WorkflowGen version 5.6.3.)

The UPDATEPROCESSDATA application allows you to update process data associated to a request. It provides a simple solution for inter-process communications.

####Required parameter

Parameter                                    Type       Direction Description
REQUEST_ID Numeric IN This parameter must contain a valid request ID

The optional parameters are the process data to update (the parameter name is the process data name). You must define those parameters in the corresponding action parameters.

####Example

You want to update the data “AMOUNT” with the value of a process data “AMOUNT_UPDATE”. The request ID to update is stored in a “REQUEST_ID_UPDATE” process data.

Ceate a workflow action using UPDATEPROCESSDATA with the following parameters:

  • REQUEST_ID send the value of: Data: REQUEST_ID_UPDATE
  • AMOUNT send the vaue of: Data: AMOUNT_UPDATE

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