Flow's Set Thing Property Action to set parameter of Infotable type?

Hi all,

Anybody used Thingworx Flow "Set Thing Property" Action to set parameter of Infotable type?

Seems like it could only be used to set basic types like string or number?

Any ideas of how to use it for parameters of type Infotable ?

Thanks

Hi @anickolsky.

 

Per the case opened for this issue, the following is the workaround:

 

Create another javascript service which assigns the Property value of Infotable P1 to P2.  Example: me.P2=me.P1.  In Workflow, instead of using SetThingProperty, use another Execute Service action for executing this new Service.

Hi,

 

I tested in TWX Flow 8.5.3 and it is working on my side:

What version are you using?

Hi Raluca,

I'm on 8.5.4

Issue is if input is infotable (and holds multiple rows) it's not possible to map it as infotable to infotable.

I cannot see input in your silde.

Pls see attached screenshots.

Many thanks,

Andrey

Hi,

 

I have added infotable as input for set property and I am getting the following error in Application.log:

 

"An Invalid Property Value Was Sent To [thing1 Property: [[{"name":"tom","age":1},{"name":"jerry","age":2}]]"

 

Can you see same error in Application.log after running flow?

 

Thanks,

Raluca Edu

Hi Raluca,

I don't see this kind of error since I use input as an output from provious service that runs smooth.

The only way to do mapping is to derive single parameters one by one from input and map them to aparameters of manualy added row. That's not a solution for sure.

Hi,

 

Seems I would need to open a ticket with R&D.

I will come back to confirm ticket was open.

 

Do you want also to open a ticket with PTC Support?

 

Thanks,
