  As we can start workflow from different places, you need to overlay these files to fix this at all places

  • /libs/cq/gui/components/authoring/workflow/startworkflow
  • /libs/wcm/core/content/coral/common/createworkflowdialog


Hope this helps.

Is it possible for you to share the use case that we are trying to achieve with captured value/ where exactly we need to access the captured dropdown field value.

Hi @Vijayalakshmi_S 


This is to capture what type of Changes were made to the page like "Image Update" or "Copy update" and etc , so we can generate a report on workflows.
