How to create an Object soft-type via API (Static Factory Method)

Hi All,


I have some code that creates an Change Requestvia static factory method in a Workflow Expression Robot. I am trying to adapt to create a soft-type of Change Request. I thought that disbaling OIR's for the parent type (or setting the instantiable checkbox in the type and attribute manager would do the trick, butno luck. Any ideas?

You have to set the type identifier via API before persisting it. Easier to
just look at LWCNormalizedObject then doing with code from the older days
unless you are still on 9.1. I can share if you need.

RE: How to create an Object soft-type via API (Static Factory Method)

Hi, you can use the "unsupported" method I used to create a subtype of WTChangeActivity2 (see attached snipped code)


See statement


((Typed)ca).setTypeDefinitionReference(TypedUtilityServiceHelper.service.getTypeDefinitionReference(targetType));


where targetType is defined as String.


I am sure it should work for ChangeRequest.


Regards,


Vittorio
