  • When you are creating the same folder name with multiple times there you have to retrieve with folder ID.

    This doesn't really make much sense from a procedural perspective.  2 issues:

    1. why would you create multiple different folders with the same name?  While there's no requirement for folder name uniqueness in the Appian filesystem (since the name is really only an alias for the Folder ID), it only stands to add extra confusion for anyone trying to navigate the filesystem later.
    2. this still doesn't answer Stefan's question of why you specifically need to access the Folder's ID in-process, seeing as how the folder-type PVs stored in-process are still just an alias for the folder ID.
