How to show a custom dialog in EMCA ?

Avatar

Hi,

I am trying to call a custom dialog in ECMA workflow step. I am getting the following error.

Caused by: org.apache.sling.api.scripting.ScriptEvaluationException: Failure running script /etc/workflow/scripts/clientlibs/test/customworkflow.ecma: ReferenceError: "CQ" is not defined. (/etc/workflow/scripts/clientlibs/test/customworkflow.ecma#21)

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

Not sure what you're trying to do exactly, this sounds a bit confused.  If you want to use a custom dialog for a step in a workflow you must use the Dialog Participant Step.  Or perhaps you're trying to execute an ecma script as a step in a workflow - when you do this there is no CQ object defined.  

See here for what is provided to you by the workflow engine when you script is executed as a workflow step [0].  If you want to create a dialog for a participant step see here [1].

Hope this helps,

Will

Read the CQ documentaton located here:

http://docs.adobe.com/docs/en/cq/5-6-1/workflows/wf-extending.html#Accessing Dialog Property Values at Runtime

IN this doc topic - there is mention of ECMA. However - i am not seeing mention of a custom dialog. I will ask eng team to help here.

Hi Scott,

Thanks for your reply.

I am also referring the same page for ECMA scripts.

If you could get me help from eng team that will be really helpful.

Thanks.
