I want to be able to start a related action from the record list instead of having to navigate to the summary view of a specific record and see the related action there. I see that you can have something called a "record action field" as a list option for the record list, however I am having trouble passing through the specific records id in order to start the process. Does anyone have some more insight on how I can execute this?
For more detail, I am creating an office supply management application, and I would like for employees to be able to request more stock of an item by clicking the red plus sign on the right. However, I am unsure how to capture that item's id in order to start the process to request more inventory. I've been experimenting with different methods and I know that this code does not work, but this is the direction that I've gone in:
amin0001 Can you check the context in a separate rule to see whether you are passing the correct data or not?
If you select the component 'Record Action Field' you should be able to select a the Record Identifier that you want to pass to the Related Action, assuming that's what you want to pass to the Process Model:
I think my question is more so what to pass since rp!id will not pass through the record id since I am trying to activate this process from the record list view. Additionally, I don't believe I see this functionality since I am implementing the recordFieldAction() in a record instead of an interface.
The rule works as it should, but I'm unsure what to pass into the rule since I cannot use things such as rf!id or rp!id from the record list.
Hi Ami - here's what to do:
I apologize for my numerous questions, but I am new to Appian. When I pass through rp!id (which is the only parameter I need for the process model) - I incur this error. I am assuming this is because I am activating a related action from the record list instead of a singular record which is returning a list of ids instead of an individual one. Can you clarify this issue?
Can you show me the configurations for each of the steps I outlined above:
