Hi all,

I have a simple question.

I've designed a process with LCES 8.2.1. To start my process, I've setup "Task Manager" endpoint.

The user can login within LiveCycle Workspace ES, start the process. It displays a Form Guide when the user can fill-in my form and add attachments. Then he clicks on Submit.

What is need is to store the attachments in a variable to get the names of the files.

I've noticed that when I add a "User" step in my workflow, I can assign a "list of documents" variable to the attached files of a task. It's working well.

How to get the list of files attached by the user when this is the endpoint. I can't find any way to assign the attachments with a "list of documents" variable when I create the endpoint. I guess that the files are stored in a variable, but I can't find how to access them...

Thanks...

Hi Michael,

For the first user step you should select 'Copy from previous task' option for the attachments rather than the list. This will give you the attachments that somone attached while starting this process via task manager endpoint.

If you want to use List variable from the first Use step onwards then you should configure that List to store attachments coming out of that User step and then after your subsequent user steps can have list variable configure for the attachments.
