How to read XDP file files dynamically from workbench folders

sobhan_sahu 19-05-2017

we have few Livecycle workbench processes which uses fileutils service to read XDP file from a LAN location.

But now we are trying to get rid of that LAN location and upload the xdp's to the workbench application.

So is there a way I can read those XDP's from the workbench application folders dynamically based on the form number given as input.

Which activities can I use to pick up the correct XDPs and what kind of variables can be used for those activities.


Please help with this.

You can use the Foundation / readApplicationAsset activity in workbench for this.

You can give it an Xpath for the "appPath" for example:

concat(<folder name>,"/",<xdp filename>) e.g.

concat("myApplication/", "form1")

This will return a document that you can use in the rest of your process
