When using a record related action, is there a way to send other parameter values besides the identifier to the dialog screen?
I want to select several rows from the read-only grid of screen#1 and pass the information of the rows to the dialog#1.

I don't think so until you write that data in DB and then based on the identifier, you query data again in the PM. That isn't a good approach tho. So I would suggest ditching the Related Action and creating a custom action for your screen. Also, I might have better solutions to this but for that, can you please tell me more about your use-case?
Yeah, we also came up with the idea of writing that data in DB and then querying data again in the PM based on the identifier. However, I agree that it's not a good way.
I would like to know more about what you mean by the "creating a custom action"?
On the grid of screan#1, user will select several rows, and receive information from the selected rows on the screen#2. And then move on to the next process. (Hope the screen#1 is a usual interface, and the screen#2 is a dialog method. )
By creating custom actions, we eliminate the dialog box as they can only be generated using the record actions and related actions.
What I mean by custom action is that you add a card (with the button look and feel) on the screen and add a start process link on it. Then you pass all the desired params in the process and chain the nodes until the first UIT.
