Does anyone have any experience using CreateWorkflowFromModelId method on the nms:operation schema?
I've tried to call it using a valid workflow template, but every time it returns "0" for the plWorkflowId, and there is no workflow object being created. I use SOAPUI to make the call using the nms:operation schema WSDL.
I've also tried adding an operationPlanning element in <urn:elemOperationPlanning>, but this also returns the same result.
I have solved this using the CreateInstanceFromModel method on xtk:queryDef. Here is the sample XML I used to create a workflow from a template, and then associate ("patch") the workflow to a campaign object:
I used the same request that you've used. It works! You need to link the campaign id to the workflow template. However, I was able to create only one workflow in the campaign using this api call. If I try to execute the same api call again, that didn't work.
You had to manually update the workflow template with the campaign id? And then when you executed the CreateWorkflowFromModelId method it automatically assigned a new workflow to that specific campaign?
I could not replicate this behavior. Also, I want to be able to create a new workflow from a template for any campaign, not one specifically assigned to a campaign object.
Do you know of any other way to create workflows from a template and assign to any campaign? Other than Spawn (+ derivatives) or CreateWorkflowFromModelId? There must be a way or it wouldn't be possible through the console either.
Thanks for the reply. I have tried the xtk:workflow Spawn method, however whilst this creates a new workflow from a template, it also starts the workflow. I could set the workflow template up to have a disabled start activity, and this does work, however it also creates workflow logs which seems to be a bit of a hack.
Ideally, I want to replicate the functionality of the console, where a new workflow can be automatically associated to a campaign:
