Activity/step in the workflow has a blinking red outline

Symptom
Activity/step blinks red in the diagram, and the workflow goes to the Paused state (default behavior.)
The workflow Failed flag is set to Yes (true) which can be seen in an Explorer folder or view containing workflows or in the Home page Instance monitoring dashboard.
Cause
An uncaught exception during the processing of the activity/step.
Fix
To diagnose the exception, right-click on the activity/step and select Display logs. The fix will depend on the particular exception.
Preventative
In the future, avoid taking the action that caused the exception.
Note:
Specific exceptions will be described in subsequent discussions of this sub-forum.

Antonise,
The match/merge step is manual because In real time scenarios 'The person who have access to add records in Data Manager not necessarily can have access to approve or disapprove the new added records', so the case become one client say add records in Data Manager and the approval/disapproval, match/merge etc. steps will be performed by Admin or say DBO.
Thats why match/merge step have manual execution.
And your qyery if no match found then its should be automatic to next step "No because Admin still can refuse those new added records untill and unless he/she is not satisfied"
Rewards if helpful.

  • Skipping merge  in match /merge step in the workflow

    Dear all,
    Accepting new imported records in a workflow. One step is looking for identicals in a match/merge step. The user has to accept or skip records depending on the matching results. Manual step to be performed always.
    We are looking for a solution the manual step is skipped in case no matches are found. fi. the matching result is 10 low. The next step in the flow has to start now.
    What process or process step has to be performed?
    Thanks in advance

  • Transaction brackets of the workflow has been damaged

    Hi,
    I am integrating workflow with the HR Processes and Forms using HCM.
    The process is new hiring and in configuration I have given the workflow name which is copy of the standard workflow(WS18900008). The event used is draft_created.
    When I execute the process and press the Save Draft, everything goes fine, the workflow gets completed but for the step Save Form Data(WS17900260) throws the following error:
    Executing Batch work Item: Transaction brackets of the workflow has been damaged.
    The task is TS17900108.
    Not able to understand what is this error and to which it is related.
    Pls help.

    Look for SAP Notes as this is SAP standard code.
    Short Text
    Transaction brackets of the workflow has been damaged
    Diagnosis
    When executing the workflow with the ID , the transaction brackets were destroyed by a commit command ('C') or a rollback work command ('R'). This command ('') was stopped from the implementation program of the object type. Access takes place, for example, when a condition is evaluated or when the container operation is executed. Access may only have a read character which is why a commit or rollback work command is not necessary.
    System Response
    The system has written a log entry. Uncontrolled commit or rollback work commands can affect the restart function of the workflow system. This restart function is only necessary in the case of errors. The current workflow instance is executed further.
    Procedure
    Check the implementation program of the object types and remove the corresponding ABAP instructions.

  • Is there a way to see what font was used originally, after the type has been converted to outlines?

    Hi all, I would really like to know if there is any way to find out what font was used originally in an Illustrator document, after the type has been converted to outlines? The reason for this is I need to update some wording in a couple of old logos I had made and I have NO idea what font I had used...for the life of me I just cannot remember. Because this was so urgent for one of my projects I had to do a search online via "WhatTheFont" to see what font it could be (which I then didn't seem to have in my library!), and repurchase it. I am 99% sure I HAVE the font - or something VERY close - but under a different name.
    Normally I keep a much better record of fonts used but there have been times occasionally in the past when I have done something in a hurry and changed the type to outlines without keeping the original, or keeping detailed notes at least. The fact that I did NOT keep notes on a few projects I have done in the past has made me want to kick myself because now I need to revisit one of those again..grrr:)
    Can anyone offer any advice? I appreciate your help as always:)

  • Application folder icon in the Dock has a thick red bar

    The application folder icon in the Dock has a thick red bar across the top back. What does this mean? Assuming red is a negative indicator, how do I fix the issue?
    Thank you.

    Problem solved.
    It was the top of a red icon in the folder (Adobe of course). Found this out by arranging by kind rather then name.
    Feeling kind of red (faced) myself at this point.

  • Problem in Workflow during activity step with "Requested start" time.

    Hi,
    I am working on SAP workflow.
    In my workflow there is a activity step (wait step) where the workflow should wait before going to step after that wait step. To achieve this, I have used requested start as +10 min with WIS workitem creation. After 10 min, the workflow should proceed to further step but my workflow does not go further.
    It was working good I tested couple of days back but now it doesn't. Can someone please help ?
    Thanks.

  • Is it possible to remove the contribution step in the basic workflow?

    Hi,
    Our client wants complete control on the the steps and users for each step of the workflow.
    This is the approach they want to follow.
    There would be a default workflow associated for all content. Any updates to any manged content will have to go through this workflow. There will be only one step having one user for this workflow. Whenever content changes the workflow routes to this user. This user will then decide to define the steps and users for the steps of workflow to be asscoiated to this content.
    We thought of making it simple by using a critera workflow and basic workflows to achive this. The default workflow which I was saying would be the criteria workflow. Now once the workflow taskt comes o the user's basket he will then create a basic workflow for the content id with required steps and the users. He will then accept the criteria workflow and start the basic workflow immediately. But we have to ensure somehow that this content of criteria workflow should not be published. We are using content publishing uitility. Hope we can do something there. What I mean by not published here is that content changes made in the basic workflow should not be visible to the end site but they should be visible in the basic workflow.
    Now the concern is that in basic workflow there is a mandatory contributor step which is not really required for us. How can we avoid it. And we how to ensure that the approved contents of criteria are not published unless the basic workflow is approved?
    Regards,
    Pratap

    Pratap,
    I think you will have to mix several standard mechanisms to achieve what you are looking for.
    Note that there are two basic ways to achieve that an item is not accessible:
    - item's state (sending an item to a workflow or leaving it in pending state before the item is published belong to this option)
    - item's security (security groups, accounts, ACLs, etc.)
    If you want to have an item in a state that it has not entered a workflow (I'm not sure, but I think it wouldn't be a good idea to mix criteria and basic workflows), but it has to be accessible to a certain group of users, you may have to:
    1) check the item in so that it is accessible to the selected group of users only (published, no workflow)
    2) have the users start the workflow
    3) somewhere (most likely at the beginning of the workflow) relieve the security restriction so that "normal" users can access it during the workflow
    4) as soon as the workflow finishes, it will be available to everyone
    as for 1) I'd consider ACLs (Collaboration Manager component)
    Another option is to write a component with your own logic - if from any reason the standard mechanisms will have too many obstacles to overcome.
    I'd also recommend to consider using BPEL workflows rather than basic workflows - they are equally flexible (if not more) and they can be more easily combined with criteria workflows. You could:
    1) create a general criteria workflow which would grab any new item
    2) the criteria workflow would have just two steps: step 1 - grab an item, wait until BPEL workflow is defined/selected, then continue; step 2 - a synchro step which wait until BPEL workflow finishes, then continue or finish right away

  • Workflow Questions - How to execute the steps in a workflow automatically?

    I am using MDM 5.5 SP6.
    My Question is how to execute the steps in the workflow automatically. That means NO user interaction.
    I have a simple workflow, Start- Process -- Syndicate -  Stop.
    When a new record added /updated/inserted this workflow will start automatically.  The workflow inbox, the workflow status is u2018Receivedu2019 Step is u2018Processu2019.  Now I have to right click on the record then u2018Next Stepu2019 then click on u2018Syndicateu2019 then workflow completes automatically.
    How to execute the Syndication step automatically?.  I donu2019t want to have any user interaction to syndicate these records.
    Is this possible?
    The reason for this is I want to do some field validation and based on the field validation some assignments then then I want  to syndicate these records without user interaction..

    Hi,
    If you want to do some validations and then based on result assignments on some of the fields before syndicating, then you have to use workflow. Only syndication server will not fulfill this requirement.
    you may try by making validation's automatic property as "Error". This way it will not allow to add any record not fulfilling validation. You can also try using calculated fields instead of assignment.
    I am not sure if you can make your workflow fully automatic, because atleast one process step is must for any workflow, and process step means user action.

  • Approval status not captured in the workflow...

    Hi,
    In my 4 tier approval workflow, I have a user decision loop , before which a user decision step is there for approve or reject.
    There are two paths under user decision, one says when reject or approve and another says till last layer which then leads to container operation to collect the next level of agent.
    Under when reject or approve step, there is a condition step that checks if user has approved or rejected.
    Now I need to store in a custom table status R if rejected , status A if approved.
    So I have added 2 steps under each path (approve and reject), but it so happens that when the first tier agent rejects it, the status gets recorded in the custom table but when he approves it , A status is not updated.
    If the first agent approves and second one (final) approves only then A is updated.
    I want the status to be recorded like this
    agent1     Submitted for approval
    This should change to agent 1    approved and then another entry should be added in the custom table with submitted for approval for agent 2.
    My code is in a custom class and it looks fine as it wors for submitted for approval as well for reject. But not for Approved. Container objects in both reject and approve are same except that I pass A or R.
    What can be wrong ??
    thnks

    HI
    First let me give a breif explanation about how and where the result of the decision step is captured.
    While creating a decision step in the workflow you would be giving some texts for each outcome, let say in your case you said that For both approve and reject you are using one branch (Assume that id of this branch is 0001) now the other branch is for reading the next level agent (0002)  so now when you click on the first button then the Decision workitem standard  container element WIRESULT will be populated with 0001 and let say if you clcik on the second button to read the next level approver then WIRESULT will be populated with 0002..
        Here your design is conflicting ( Assuming that what I said above is what you have implemented)  Instead what you can try to do is Just have two outcome in the decision step as 1. Approve(0001) 2. Reject (0002) , now two braches will be coming out of decision step ,  now getting the next level agent keep it in a different background task, by creating a separate BOR method. Insert this task in both the branches.....
    The remaining activities what ever you are perfoming to update the table you do it normally... as you did

  • Add extra step to approval workflow

    Hello,
    I have an approval workflow where it requires 2 people to approve the document, one after the other. All working nicely.
    Once both approvers have approved the document, I would like an extra step (task) added before the workflow initiator is emailed that the workflow has been approved.
    I would like a third person to be emailed to do something with the document (I can add the instruction in the email that is sent).
    After the third person completes the task, then the workflow initiator is notified the approval workflow has finished (as per usual).
    Is it possible to modify the approval workflow to add that extra step? And if it is, could you kindly advise how to do that? I would be very grateful.
    Thank you.
