In the script activity I defined a variable (string length>255):
vars.cmpdeliveries = myVar123; //myVar123 is a string with more than 255 characters
In the query activity, where I define the recipients, I add the variable above using 'complementary information' (also tried with enrichment activity, but end up with the same error).
When running the workflow I get an error:
ORA-210000 Oracle error: ORA-12899: value too large for column "CAMUSER"."WKF28138905_32_1"."SCMPDELIVERIES" (actual: 780, maximum: 255)...
The goal is to use the variable (targetData.cmpdeliveries) in a delivery (continuous delivery activity in the same workflow). It works if the variable has less than 255 characters. Any solution for string >255 characters?
If you just want to use a lengthy variable inside a delivery, you can try using variables in delivery like following.
Define your datatype as 'CDATA' or 'Memo' based on how you want to fetch value in your delivery.
Hope the following helps you.
If you want to store different variable value to different user, you may need to use querydef in js and then update this 1024 characters field.
try adding something like this.
I think you can not query if it is stored as @data field and I think it is stored as XML.
You need to define datatype in schema:
<element label="Long value" name="longValue" type="CDATA"/>
Thank you! I marked this as the correct answer because it solved my issue.
But with this solution I can't use "Continuous Delivery" because the activity doesn't have a "Script" tab. I use now multiple "Delivery" activities instead and this works. If somebody knows a solution for "Continuous Delivery" activity feel free to post.
This looks promising. Output in "View population" looks ok. However, when I use "XML Memo" (@test) in the continuous delivery it is empty.
<%= targetData.test %>
Thanks for your replies.
If I understand you correctly your solution implies to store the value of the variable into a field (of type CDATA or MEMO) of the recipient table. But I don't want to store the data in the database. All I want to do is to enrich the query/temporary-schema with the value of the variable, in order to use it in the delivery.
This is my workflow:
Query activity (Complementary information):
This activity fails if length(vars.mytestvar)>255; I don't want to store it in the DB.
Delivery template for continuous delivery:
How to define datatype CDATA or Memo? Do you have a sample? Is there any documentation?
