Hi all,

I created a folder of type WFs. What if I put anything other than WFs in that folder?

Will it raise error then and there itself?

How is this rule of folder type enforced?

Appreciate all your responses.

Thanks,

Rama.

Hi,

 

Folders are just a folder-id col on the tables, they can be assigned arbitrarily.

Nothing will stop you from adding a non-WF to a WF folder, besides the console UI.

Non-WF objects won't show in the folder since it's querying the table of its type, essentially 'select * from xtkworkflow where folder-id=...'.

 

Thanks,

Hi Rama,

The folders are typed: the value of the sModel field specifies the type of data that can be contained in the folder.
navigate to data schema > xtk:folder > data (tab) > configure list > add @model (Template)
We can see model for each folder as below image.

So when we create a folder of type 'workflow', its model will be 'xtkWorkflow'.
We can't put any other different type into that folder. For example, we can't drag and drop workflow into data schema folder. The cursor icon will change as below picture.
