Hi All, 

 

How can we enable or disable any workflow launcher based on feature flag value. 

Any suggestion please.

Hi,

Yes, you can enable/disable launcher based on the feature flag.

What do you mean with "Feature flag"? Is it the sling feature with the same name [1] or do you refer to the software development pattern (which is not tied to any implementation)?

 

In any way, each workflow launcher has a flag "enabled", which you can set (based on any type of code or automation).

Thanks Jorg for your reply.we have a requirement to invoke workflow based on asset metadata update. For that reason written a launcher which is working fine for individual asset update.

We do not want to invoke that launcher in case of bulk metadata update hence exploring feature enabled / disabled flag option available in launcher configuration.

Ok, I understand. The problem with enabling/disabling the workflow launcher is that this is a global setting. That means, that when you disable it for your bulk process, all "regular" uploads happening in parallel are affected as well.

But there is an undocumented feature available, which allows that changes performed during a session do not trigger workflows. I found it described at https://experienceleaguecommunities.adobe.com/t5/Adobe-Experience-Manager/Use-of-quot-event-user-dat...

Thanks Arun, for your time and replying on the thread. I already gone through your blog post and found very useful. But somehow not satisfying my requirement.
