I need some help, it's probably really easy but I'm having some trouble. I started using Appian 10 days ago and I created a simple application. There's a dynamic form/wizard you can fill in. The data is stored in a data entity. The data from the data entity is displayed in a record grid. In this grid the data can be viewed as read only in the summary.
When the submit button is pressed a task is send to a user (initiator in this case). The task shows the form/wizard data as read only with radio buttons approve/reject and a submit button.
I'm trying to update the value in the database when that submit is pressed. In the summary I have the value displayed to see if it's working. That value remains empty now.
Everything except for updating the approve value is configured correctly.
My process model:
In User Input Task properties/Data/Inputs/ for the value in question I have:
Save into: record.Approve
Isn't it already?
Will be back tomorrow morning (Europe time)
Hello Mike, Thanks for your reply. Yeah I thought so too. I tried to add a second WTDS but it did not work. Probably my own fault. Some background info on this: I have one data store and one data type entity. The data type entity contains all variables including the form data and approval variable. When the process model goes through the first WTDS it writes all form data in the data store. In that case everything has a value except approval (that stays empty until it gets a value when the form is approved/rejected in a task). Then we get the user input task which shows the form 'read only' with radio buttons 'approve/reject' and a second submit button, different from the one filling in the form. When I add a second WTDS node after the UIT node with the same parameters as the first one it doesn't change anything. The values remain unchanged.
I created a second WTDS again. Made the inputs different. I removed the parent value and filled values for each one except approval. In the second WTDS I did the same but here I did it the other way around, giving only approval a value. Which brings me to the next problem. There are two entries created now. One with the form data without an approval value and another without form data with only the approval value. You can see it on the picture of the grid below:
That needs to be one entry, so it will need to have the same ID.
