Attachment variable in Workspace startpoint


Level 5

Hello all,

I'm configuring a Workspace startpoint in ES3 and trying to set a Attachment variable which is not working properly and can't figure out what's happening.

When I click the plus button to add a new variable, it automatically chooses a List variable and I set the subtype as document (see image below), in other words I say that the attachment variable is a list of documents, which is correct and is what the documentation says.

However as you see in the imagem below, it doesn't recognize the variable:

and therefore I get the error below when I invoke the process:

What am I doing wrong?

In order to use an attachment variable in the Workspace startpoint you need to set the variable as an Input Process variable. Once you do that it should be displayed in the list under Attachment options.

Hi Phillips, thanks for your reply. But I've already done that, although it's not shown in my example above.

Still, I'm getting the same error.

Any idea?
