Set State Robot not setting state.

Okay,  This has to be something simple I am missing...

 

I am trying to set state in a workflow to Under Review and it isn't performing that action.  The workflow completes successfully, and does not hang, but the state isn't changed.

Is underreview a valid state(defined in LC template) for the PBO?

Binesh,  yes it is...

Do you need to have set state permission and also have it declared it in the lifecycle. Normally "Under Review" is defined as a "Lock" transition, so it's not a valid state. If you would like to lock it, then you need to have something like this:

wt.maturity.TransitionHandlerFactory.getInstance().transitionTargets(primaryBusinessObject, wt.lifecycle.Transition.LOCK, false);

 

Anyone solve this yet? I'm on windchill 11.1 and have a custom workflow and custom lifecycle using the custom workflow. It seems to skip over the set state, and goes to the approval/review activities with no issue, then skips notification of completion and then skips another setstate and finally never starts a second review activity. 

i have valid lifecycle states, and every state has the set state for every other state as an option. i can not figure out why this is not working.
