Custom Functions included:
Example use cases:
Note: Runs under its process context, so make sure your process has the appropriate privileges to pause/resume/cancel/etc the particular task.
My customer wants to reposition (more info on that below) a process after a succesful upgrade. By reposition, I mean start a new user task added in the process upgrade which is placed before of the current active task, and after that cancel the current active task in order to leave just one active task in the process.
The effect we are looking for is that after "reposition", final user find the process flow waiting for him in the new task added in the process upgrade.
Could you tell me if this is possible whit any of the methods of this plugin? Or using any other smart service that I can include in a process?
In the below process workflow, I'd like to start "Tarea nueva" and cancel "Aprobacion". I know how to do the cancel, but don't know if it's possible to do the new task start.
Thanks in advance
Is this plugin compatible to 20.X version or do we have another plugins to get the Task Accepted Time?
Check the task status in your task report to ensure the value will be populated.
The expression is just a wrapper for this api: docs.appian.com/.../TaskSummary.html
Per node description, the task is "on hold", there is no automatic resumption of activity. A paused tasks needs to be specifically resumed.
So the short answer is that task is always paused indefinitely.
How long can a task be paused by the PauseTask smartservice?
I have the latest version of this plugin deployed on my appian envt . I am also able to see the functions and the smart services.
But when i try to use the getTaskAcceptedTimestamp function by passing the task id it s not returning the right value instead returning null.
Can someone please advice on this .
Thanks Mike - that would explain it. I'll keep an eye out on the Admin Console for when the latest version of the Plug In is available for Cloud customers :-)
The direct Cloud deployment sources the file from a different place. The updated jar is not deployed there yet.
