  • 1.  Update Due Date Plug In

    Posted 03-13-2024 09:36

    I'm trying to update the due date dynamically for a solutions workflow based on values the requester/originator provides on the form.  I'm trying to use the Update Due Date Plug In and I cannot get it to work. What am I doing wrong?  Where do I find the correct Process Id or Assignment Id?

    Hi Jamie

    I haven't used the plugin.  Instead I used a priority, which translates to an SLA date for a node in the workflow.  I used a rule to take today's date and add days based on the priority - high is 1 day, medium is 2 days, low is 3 days, for example.  adddays(today(),priorityvalue)

    then I used a property on the swimlane task to use that calculated value on Allow Override Duration:

    the contents 

    That's one way to do it.  I'm not sure about your scenario, but I know this works.

    Hope that helps,

    Hi Jamie,

    I have shared the solution on the link :

    I have added a data connection to my evolve database to fetch the process Id.

    On "Originator View" you can set the document name, on next view you can use this Document/Process name to fetch the process id using a query element, SQL query : select Id from WF_Process where Name = 'Your form name/Field XPATH'.

    Once you have the ID you can use in the plugin as configured below :

    NOTE : for the due date to be updated you need to update the workflow property "Duration" to empty as shown below :

    Hope this helps.
