SUMMARY Dynamically Set Workflow Activity

Adding summary:

Dynamic Activity Name (Activity Transition)
//Get the Activity
wt.workflow.engine.WfActivity myActivity = (wt.workflow.engine.WfActivity)self.getObject();
//Modify the Activity
myActivity.setName ("Work Order - " + task1Name); //task1Name is a String
//Save the Activity
myActivity = (wt.workflow.engine.WfActivity) wt.fc.PersistenceHelper.manager.save(myActivity);

Dynamic Activity Instructions
Add your String variable to the activity task instructions. Enclose the variable in curly braces.
{task1Instructions}

Dynamic Activity Participants (WFExpression)
if (task1User != null) //task1User is a wt.org.WTUser variable
{
//SET TEAM
wt.team.Team team = (wt.team.Team)((wt.team.TeamManaged)(self.getObject())).getTeamId().getObject();
//SET THE ROLES
wt.project.Role teamRole = wt.project.Role.toRole("TASK OWNER 1");
//REMOVE THE CURRENT PARTICIPANT
wt.org.WTPrincipal removeUser = null;
wt.team.TeamHelper.service.deleteRolePrincipalMap( teamRole,removeUser,team);
//ADD THE PARTICIPANTS TO THE TO_ROLES
wt.team.TeamHelper.service.addRolePrincipalMap( teamRole, task1User, team );
}

Dynamic Activity Due Date
Create and set a wt.workflow.engine.WfDueDate variable from a preceding task or from code.
Add the wt.workflow.engine.WfDueDate variable to the appropriate task as visible, required and read set to false. Set resettable to true.

Hope this helps,

RE: SUMMARY Dynamically Set Workflow Activity

Hi Dax,


Should the code you have given below be given inside a workflow expression ?

Hi Praseeth,

This code was intended to be used as the start transition inside a
workflow activity.

Re: RE: SUMMARY Dynamically Set Workflow Activity

Hi,

I've added a variable in curly braces into my instructions tab of an activity (a global workflow variable) but all it comes out with is that exactly as it is inputted.

ie {TestDebugString}

So is there anything special I need to do to make this bit work

Dynamic Activity Instructions

Add your String variable to the activity task instructions. Enclose the variable in curly braces.

{task1Instructions}

Re: RE: SUMMARY Dynamically Set Workflow Activity

I've found out how to do this. You cannot use a global variable and expect it to work. I created a local variable in the activity and used the initialize from the global variable. Then if you place the local variable into the instructions tab in curly braces it works.

Re: RE: SUMMARY Dynamically Set Workflow Activity

Hello Dax,

I am having requirement of creating workflow activities with different instructions(actually part instruction is specific to user) for different participant. could you please guide, how i can achieve this?

Re: RE: SUMMARY Dynamically Set Workflow Activity

In the case of needing just the text task instructions to vary, people have used various text functions for a long time to populate a String workflow variable.  Just present the variable in one Task, and then present the current value of that in Task(s) that follow.

Re: RE: SUMMARY Dynamically Set Workflow Activity

Hello Mike,

Thank you for reply...

In my requirement, I am having only one activity in workflow...which is having only one responsible role....this role is having N no. of participants(WTUser)...this task is to be assigned to these users with slightly different subject in task....if possible could you please guide me how i can give task with different subject( Subject is having link to Primary object)

Re: RE: SUMMARY Dynamically Set Workflow Activity

This is much more challenging and I don't have a good answer. If you were to configure the workflow template with separate Activities, then each could present the workflow variable after it was changed by a previous user.  If you need to keep it as is, I don't think that I can offer any help.
