2012-05-15 20:05:55 utc Mugatu Is it possible to set a process variable from outside of the workflow? For instance, given a wfid, if I lookup that process from the dashboard, can I inject (or set) a process variable? Or is the correct way to do it is to effect it from within the workflow by nature of testing a workitem field?
2012-05-15 22:00:45 utc jmettraux Mugatu: hello, you can set a process variable from the Dashboard, but it's a bit hard to do
2012-05-15 22:00:57 utc jmettraux it's easier to set such a process variable at launch time
2012-05-15 22:01:09 utc jmettraux $dashboard.launch(pdef, fields, variables)
2012-05-15 22:02:16 utc jmettraux but you are right, the more natural way to influence a workflow is via a workitem field (provided the workflow gave you a workitem via a participant)
2012-05-15 22:02:28 utc jmettraux or by sending a signal to the workflow (cancel, etc)
