Dialog Participant Step not storing input data in workitem metadata

Avatar

Level 3

We have a Workflow model in which we are using "Dialog Participant Step" as one of the step.

We have mapped the dialog path to cq:dialog of one of the component where we have 2 properties

(TextField and PathBrowser). When the user completes the step he gets extra 2 input fields in the WorkItem complete modal. The user enters the values to the input field and clicks on ok.

But the data is not being stored in the WorkItem Metadata. So we are not able to process next steps in the workflow as the subsequent steps depend on the input values of the user in the previous step.

Thanks,

Debasis

Probably you are checking for the value in the wrong place. The value is saved in the workitem/metadata node under the history node. The node path would look something like below:

/var/workflow/instances/server0/2019-07-25/<your-workflow-name>/history/<some-unique-id>/workItem/metaData

Verified on AEM 6.4, 6.5. If it works for me, it should work for you as well, unless you have modified/overlayed some OOTB renderer files under libs.

Hi Kiran,

Please overlay the below file.

/libs/cq/inbox/gui/components/inbox/dialoginjection/render/render.jsp

and update the code as below

CHANGE

data-payloadpath="<%= xssAPI.getValidHref(payloadPath) %>"

TO

data-payloadpath="<%= xssAPI.getValidHref(workitem.getWorkflow().getId()+"/data/metaData") %>"

Please let me know if you need further help.

Thanks,

Debasis

This is mentioned in the official adobe docs (link below). Have you tried whether this works or not?

While creating the dialog avoid using the usual convention of naming the property as "./propName" instead name it as "propName" and the value is stored in workitem metadata under history.

If you want to store the dialog field value in the payload properties instead, name your dialog field as "./jcr:content/propName".

Both the above scenarios work fine for me. It's always better to follow the convention mentioned in the docs than customizing the OOTB files.

Thanks Nikash for replying.

The first option where the property name "./propName" is replaced by "propName" , the value is not being stored.

I am checking if I am missing anything.

The second option is working fine.

Thanks,
