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
Harrie

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.

  • Problem with Matching and Merging Step of MDM Workflow

    Hi,
    I have created a workflow which will first Match Step where the user will do both
    Matching and Merging. Then, it will go for a process step Final Review.
    Then, it will go for Branch step which is named as Decide on Check in.
    There are two workflow which are launched after this step.
    My workflow ran one time.
    The number of records is: 19585. The Match step which is assigned to a different user is not performing.
    It is a simple match based on First Name, Middle Name and Last Name.
    Any suggestion?
    Regards
    Kaushik Banerjee

    Hi Kaushik,
    What do you mean with "not Performing"? One suggestion, just log in with the 'Different User' who has been assigned for the matching task, and under that user goto the matching tab, in matching tab you will find a sub tab for Workflow, I hope you can work from there, If this doesnt solve your problem, then please let us know.
    Cheers,
    Cherry.
    Sorry problem with button;... so message came again... apologize.....

  • 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.

  • One Step in the Workflow

    Hi,
    When there is a change in the status of my sales order I need to place an entry in my application server.
    An event is triggered but I don’t want to create a workflow as this will be the only workflow in my system and i need to do configurations
    Is there any way I can put the receiver as a Function Module as my step is a background step.
    If so how do I capture the event and BO key .

    Well u might get one...

  • 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.

  • 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?

    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

  • 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

  • How to handle exception thrown in standard bo method in the workflow design

    Hi Experts
        how to handle exception thrown from standard bo method in the workflow design. For example, bo BUS2032, METHOD confirm. If the user cancel it, it will throw exception. In the workflow, how to catch this exception and add corresponding steps in the workflow.

    @jrockman li
    Try to implement the logic that what ever you are performing in the BO mehtod in a FM and in the FM you have tab with name EXECPTIONS define the execption in that tab.Now in the BO method you call this FM  and if the exception occurs by using RAISE you can raise the exception in the FM and based on the number of exceptions your sy-subrc value will be set
    so when sys-subrc is not eq 0 then pass a value back t the workflow container., I think this will work.
    a sample Snippet for understanding purpose
    CALL FUNCTION 'GUI_DOWNLOAD'
      EXPORTING
        filename         = <path>
        filetype         = 'ASC'
      IMPORTING
        filelength       = lv_len
      TABLES
        data_tab         = l_txt_tab
      EXCEPTIONS
        file_write_error = 1          " If this Exception occurs
        invalid_type     = 2
        no_authority     = 3
        unknown_error    = 4
        OTHERS           = 10.
    CASE sy-subrc.
      WHEN 1. " SY-SUBRC value will be 1 then,
          " Pass or set the value back to the workflow conatiner element
    ENDCASE.

  • Failed to load configuration file for the workflow

    There are two of us who have full control on our Sharepoint 2013 site. I'm able to create workflows and publish them fine. The other user is able to create workflows, but he gets an error when trying to run them. I  tried opening his workflow and got
    the error "Failed to load configuration file for the workflow."
    Any ideas?

    Hi Carltonw1,
    Based on your description, I recommend to verify the things below:
    Clear the SharePoint Designer cache and then open the workflow.
    Ask the user to open the workflow in SharePoint Designer and check if the workflow contains error.
    Ask the user to create the same workflow and associated with another list to see how it works.
    Check the ULS log for more detailed error message.
    To reproduce this issue, could you please provide the detailed steps in the workflow for further research?
    Thanks,
    Victoria

    I have a photo of an ice surface and another of a flower. Now I want to create a merged photo with the flower lying under the ice. I understand that I shall use the function "Layer" and have even read in the manual and looked on a video, but that information is not sufficiently detailed for me. I have tried several options, but I come now way. Generally it seems that your information is only for the ones who can, not for the people who can´t although it is we who really need to learn. Please give me a step by step (click by click) information on how I can get the ice above the flower and then make the ice partly transparent so the flower is seen underneath. Please send me an e-mail Erik Solbu [email protected]

    Open a new document big enough for your image. Then additional open your ice and flower image as well. Copy each and paste it into your blank document. They will be placed on their own separate layers.
    Make sure in your layers panel. (Bottom right) the ice is above the flower, by dragging it in place. In that same layers panel click the ice layer to select in and find the opacity meter above. Drag to the left until you get the effect you desire.

  • How do I make Merge operation into the target table case insensitive?

    Hi All,
    We have a target table that has a varchar 2 column called nat_key and a map that copies over data from a source table into the target table.
    Based on wheteher the values in the nat_key column matches between the source and the target, an update or an insert has to be done into the target table.
    Let us say target table T has the following row
    nat_key
    EQUIPMENT
    Now, my source table has the same in a different case
    nat_key
    equipment
    I want these rows to be merged .
    In the OWB map, I have given the property of nat_key column in the target table as 'Match while updating' = 'Yes'. Is there a built in feature in OWB, using which I can make this match as case insensitive?
    Basically, I want to make OWB generate my mapping code as
    if UPPER(target. nat_key)=upper(source.nat_key) then update...else insert.
    Note: There is a workaround with 'Alter Session set nls_sort=binary_ci and nls_comp=linguistic', but this involves calling a pre-mapping operator to set these session parameters.
    Could anyone tell me if there is a simpler way?

    Hi,
    use an expression operator to get nat_key in upper case. Then use this value for the MERGE. Then nat_key will only be stored in upper case in your target table.
    If you have historic data in the target table you have to update nat_key to upper case. This has to be done only once and is not necessary if you start with an empty target table.
    Regards,
    Carsten.

  • Insufficient privileges at merge step

    Hi,
    I am trying to run one of the interfaces which loads data into a temp table and it's failing at merge step saying insufficient privileges. What privileges do I need to give and to which user? Or is there any other option that I need to set in order to get rid of this error.
    Thanks,
    San

    what acdti is trying to say is that the work schema user does not have necessary grants ie insert/update on the target schema.
    For Example - ODI_TEMP is your work schema and XYZ is your Target Schema and AAA is your Target Table.
    ODI_TEMP can easiliy create $ tables as its the owner but while trying to perform insert on XYZ.AAA it is throwing Insufficient privileges because its missing grants
    Resolution :- GRANT SELECT,INSERT,UPDATE ON XYZ.AAA TO ODI_TEMP   Execute this command on the Target Schema (XYZ)

    I have multiple Apple IDs. Is there a way for me to merge them into a single Apple ID?
    Apple IDs cannot be merged. You should use your preferred Apple ID from now on, but you can still access your purchased items such as music, movies, or software using your other Apple IDs.
    If you are wondering how using multiple Apple IDs relate to iCloud, see Apple IDs and iCloud.
    Apple's announcement of iOS 6 said they would allow merging accounts in the future.

  • HT4847 I have two iCloud accounts, one with 10GB and one with 20GB...how can I merge them into the 20GB plan?

    I have two iCloud plans.  One with 10GB that backs up my 1Phone and iPad.  I also have a 20GB plan for my iMAC and MAC BookPro.  How can I merge them so that I only have one plan and one iCloud to manage?    My first instinct is to delete the one on my iPhone/iPad and add the iMac plan, but I don't want to do it without an expert opinion.

    No, accounts cannot be merged.  Am I an expert?  I only know what I've read here numerous times regarding merging of plans - the answer is always emphatically NO.  Since this is a user-to-user forum (Apple doesn't participate here), you'll have to do some searching about on this topic and either accept or reject the "common" advice.
