How to find 'receive' from 'jump'

Hi,
I have taken over support of a complex workflow process that includes several layers of 'request' workflows, and several jumps into 'demand' workflows.

The question is...when I'm looking at a request workflow, and I see a Jump step, how do I find the target Receive step in the demand workflow? (If this is a really easy newbie question, I apologize!)

Hi Jim,

Please check this PDF document. In this document you will find how to configure the Jump and the Receive steps.

Hope this will help you.

Re: How to find 'receive' from 'jump'

Sachin,

I appreciate the reply, but I have read the documentation. I understand how to create a jump-receive pair. However, it appears that finding the 'receive' in another workflow is not as easy as I thought it might be. If I have dozens of package workflows, how do I figure out which step in which workflow a specific 'jump' is related to?

Jim,

There is a statement in the document which says
"The Jump/Receive Step Label field is the key communication link between separate workflows. The communicating jump and receive workflow steps must have matching
jump/receive step labels".

So this is the only way to know receive step for your jump step.

That's what I thought, which led me to the conclusion that the only was is by querying the database.

I was hoping for cleaner way of finding it!

Thanks,

Re: How to find 'receive' from 'jump'

This should help you pair them up by the label code:

select ws.JUMP_RECEIVE_LABEL_CODE,w.WORKFLOW_NAME,ws.STEP_NAME,ws.SORT_ORDER
from KWFL_WORKFLOW_STEPS_V ws
join KWFL_WORKFLOWS w on w.WORKFLOW_ID = ws.WORKFLOW_ID
where ws.JUMP_RECEIVE_LABEL_CODE is not null
order by 1,2,3
