Hey Team,

 

I am trying to extract workflow details/information from workflow/linked tables in ACS.

 

Are there any attribute in any of the table from where i can get workflow scheduling details like frequency of the workflow and executions dates?

 

Consider if the workflow is started using a api(eg. file drop)/signal activity. In this scenarios, since this is also one of kind of triggering workflow. 

Is there a way to know via tables whether that particular workflow was triggered/started via api or signal or scheduling activity without manually accessing the workflow.

 

Thanks in advance.

Unfortunately no.

This information is not accessible within workflows.

 

You can only manually retrieve it via the UI

@acs-ratul

You would be able to get mainDate (Last Start Date), nextProcessingDate, modifiedBy, lastModified from Workflow resource and you can derive conclusions as per your use case.

Alternatively, you can create a custom resource (extension to workflow resource) and add an additional field as "source". The source could be passed as a query param in the api call or external signal. Use an "update data" activity to update the source field in workflow resource (new field in custom resource) and then use this field as needed.

Hope this helps.
