Pushing a workflow attribute to a soft type document

Pushing a workflow attribute to a soft type document

I have pushed attributes from a Change Activity to a Change Notice upon completion of the activity.  Now what I would like to do is push an attribute from a document approval workflow to a soft type of document.  I have defined a workflow variable called string1 as type java.lang.String and also a variable parentDocument of type wt.doc.WTDocument.  I tried to use the logic that I had but I am getting an error.  It would be great if this possible.

 

Here is my transition code:

 

com.ptc.core.lwc.server.LWCNormalizedObject obj=new com.ptc.core.lwc.server.LWCNormalizedObject(parentDocument,null,null, new com.ptc.core.meta.common.UpdateOperationIdentifier());

obj.load("string1");
obj.set("string1",internal_name_string_on_softtype);
obj.apply();
wt.fc.PersistenceHelper.manager.modify(parentDocument);

 

The error I get when I check the syntax is:

 

warning: Supported source version 'RELEASE_7' from annotation processor 'com.microsoft.azure.management.apigeneration.LangDefinitionProcessor' less than -source '1.8'
WfExpression_10802.java:43: error: cannot find symbol

Re: Pushing a workflow attribute to a soft type document

Your issue is you quoted string1 instead of using it as a variable name. Try this:

obj.load(string1);
obj.set(string1,internal_name_string_on_softtype);

@RandyJones I got the same error when I took out the quotes.  On my task to notice string variables I have quotes on them.  That is why I had used them.

Re: Pushing a workflow attribute to a soft type document

@RandyJones I figured it out as far as the syntax.  I needed to change string one with internal_name_string_on_softtype.  Once I did this, I did not get a syntax error.  I still need to finish building my workflow so that I can test it out.  I went back and looked at my other code and that is when I realized what I had done.

I am glad you figured it out. As a side note the LWCNormalizedObject class has been deprecated and replaced by the PersistableAdapter class:
