Workflow: Dynamicaly set the fields in the body of the message

Hello.

I am trying to set the field values of the record dynamically, instead of statically typing them into the body of the Workflow Notify step. Can this be done in the Workflow, or Java API needs to be written in order to be able to do that?

    Hi,

    Identify the fields you want to display when an email is sent and make the fields as Display Fields. Now in the body of the message use %Record% this will substitute the value of Display Fields along with Record ID. Current versions of MDM has only this feature. May be MDM 7.1 contain the functionality we are looking for.

    Regards,

    Hi Igor,

    please check in the data manager on page 275, you can insert the following codes:

    Variable Description

    %RepositoryName% The repository name.

    %TableName% The table name.

    %JobId% The job id.

    %JobName% The job name.

    %StepId% The step id.

    %StepName% The step name.

    %Records% The record id and display fields of the job records.

    Best regards

    If you use %Records% variable, it will display the record with all the fields separated with "|". I just need some of the fields displayed in the body of the message. is it doable in workflow.

      Hi Igor

      Not possible with standard notify step in MDM workflow. The fields u want to display has to be display field and it is more at record level than at Field level.
