WFA 5.0 RC1 - current user in HTML5 GUI

moep

I was testing WFA 5.0 RC1 and noticed that the variable "$_WFAUser" is no longer working with the new HTML5 GUI. How do get the information which user is running the workflow now?

Hi,

 

I've raised the issue with the WFA development team. I should be fixed with WFA 5.0 GA. Thanks for flagging this issue

Hi,

 

I haven't tested this is WFA 5.0 however the following code has worked in previous versions. Try this:

 

[String]$workflowName = $(Get-WfaRestParameter "workflowName")
[Int]$workflowId      = $(Get-WfaRestParameter "workflowId")
[String]$commandName  = $(Get-WfaRestParameter "commandName")
[Int]$jobId           = $(Get-WfaRestParameter "jobId")
[String]$userName     = $(Get-WfaRestParameter "userName")

You should be about to use the "Get-WFARestParameter" cmdlet to enumerate the information you require about the current workflow.

 

Hope that helps

I need the user name before starting the command. I use it to populate a user input query. So far this worked by using the pre-defined variable "$_WFAUser".

Same problem here, no longer works with v5.

Nevermind...

Hi,

 

I tested this using WFA 5.0GA and was able to successfully use the "$_WFAUser" variable to display the currently logged in user within the HTML5 interface. The WFA 5 designer still uses flash but the portal is now HTML5. I tested a simple command to display the WFA username:

wfa2.png

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This worked fine in the HTML 5 interace:

Please let me know if there is another use case with this variable that isn't working with WFA5?

The variable doesn't work when used in Queries. HTML5 GUI won't load the workflow view currently and always shows the spinner icon.

 

Also when used as String it is inconsistent between Flash GUI and HTML5 GUI. Flash shows "DOMAIN\username", HTML5 shows only "username"
