Ad Workflow Process Path to Started Workflow

Good day all.  Does anyone know how to add a path between two Activities when a workflow has already been started?  I have a few changes that had Override Path selected, but no way to return to the previous Activity.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thank you

  • Hi Nathan,

    your request is already a few days old, but maybe you´re still interested in some hints.

    In general modifying started Workflows is not indented by Innovator.

    If you need to do it as admin to fix a few affected Workflows, you can try to manipulate the Activity relationships in the running Workflow Process. Not a pretty solution, but your best chance.

  • Angela,

    Good day.  I have been out of the office for the last week.  Do you know how I can add a path from one activity to another in a Workflow Process that has already been started?  We had a snafu with one of the in-house changes and I want to send it back, but don't have an option for it.  Thanks.

  • Do you need to add an Activity or just a Path? Adding an Activity in a running Workflow is super hard. Better start a new process. 

    If you just need a path, you could try to add one in your Workflow-map --> Activity --> select your activity --> Paths.

    The "Path" tabs shows, in which direction there are pathes from the activity. Change there will not necessarily show up in the map, but maybe it will work.

  • I need to add a path between two existing Activities in a workflow that has already been started.

  • I finally figured out the solution to my problem with this.  First I do a Nash search with the following AML, using the change number for the Workflow Process name.

    <Item type='Workflow Process' action='get' select='keyed_name'>
        <Item type='Workflow Process Activity' action='get' select='related_id'>
          <Item type='Activity' action='get' select='name,keyed_name,id'>

    Once I get the IDs for the activities that I want the path to go between, I use this AML to create the path.

    • related_id = GOING TO activity ID
    • source_id = COMING FROM activity ID
    • permission_id = Activity
    <Item type='Workflow Process Path' action='add'>
