Subworkflow to Create new entries in a dictionary

Hello all! I have a process where the user will be entering Addresses and I'm saving the new entries in a Dictionary. I have the subworkflow set up and it's working but I need to add some rules in order to not create duplicates neither empty rows. For my case, the information to be checked will be Customer Name and Address (because a customer name can have more than one address). I was trying to follow the query below but I'm not sure on how to add the dictionary there (in the database d (...)

Using WebDav

Hi, I am trying to use WebDav in order to edit other types of documents (Others than office apps). I have installed the server side plugin and the client side plugins, but I have no idea how to enable any sort of edit button in WEBCON that would trigger the WebDav App. I have tried the demo in this website: https://www.webdavserver.com/ and works, but that only confirms that I have the client side plugins installed correctly. Thanks!

Warning: Check default schema of database user used for installation/upgrade

Hello everyone, before you install/upgrade BPS check the default schema of the database user under which the installation/upgrade will be executed. Make sure that the default schema is dbo. If this is a different schema new objects may be created using this schema. This may lead to unexpected errors later on which will be hard to debug. Here's a little script to change it. SELECT name AS [Name], SCHEMA_NAME(schema_id) AS schema_name, type_desc, create_date, mod (...)

Location of SDK Logs

When creating an SDK action there is an option to use the Logger Class to create logs (https://developer.webcon.com/2021/resources/online-documentation-sdk/html/2c254e06-3ac3-3a82-7c44-dae3d829d1e4.htm) Does anyone know where these logs are located (log file on file system or a specific database table)?

Coloring Item List Cell when Value change

Hello all, Hope you're doing great! Does anyone configured a rule that will color a cell in a item list upon value change? I have an item list that will be initialized with values and if the user changes one of them, I want that cell to be marked so it's easier to check the value. I have found some examples but it's using a rule (like > than X) and it's painting the entire row. In the new release there are new item list actions which allow to paint one cell but I don't know how to wr (...)

Type of environment changing.

Is it possible to change the type of environment from PROD to TEST? Due to the expansion of the server room, we would like to transfer the production environment to another server, and leave the current one as a test environment. Is there a procedure to migrate the PROD -> TEST environment and export the application to the new PROD environment?

Add Chart to Word template

Hi, On the form, I am using the Chart data field. I am wondering whether it is possible to use the chart field in the Word printout report. Is there an alternative way to draw a chart based on the form data in the report? Maybe in HTML report. I was also thinking to put chart into the Picture field that is supported in Word templates. Any insight on how to approach this would be appreciated. Best regards Aleš

Sharepoint API to start a new workflow

Hi all! Does anyone configured a start worflow in sharepoint using an API? I've following the tutorial video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C3hC1fAjvAk) to start a subworkflow using MS Flow (now called Power Automate) but when I need to configure the Get Token Action I only have the options in the picture and they are premium. Anyone with ideas? Using the json in the column of the item list is not working. Thank you!

Using Tags in thread names

Hi everyone, I learned today that you can close threads, which prevents adding additional answers. This is fine but I believe that we that an additional hint in the thread title would help, too. There are two reasons: 1) it's easier to notice 2) It's a better user experience. If you hide an option the user will wonder why something isn't available also it should be. If you "disable" it instead and provide an explanation everything is clear. Therefore I would suggest to add [Closed] as a prefi (...)
