SOLVED Workflow Extract Process Variable Value

Hi Guys,

I'm trying to create a workflow that assigns tasks to users and I'm stuck at a part with the "Select" field (dropdown) in the form element. Basically the user who is assigned the original task will then pass the task off to someone else using the Select field (dropdown). How can I extract the value that the user selects from that dropdown and pass it into a decision node?

In the workflow backend, it's showing the value of the variable as this:

Code: Select all

{label=, name=value, width=150px, height=25px, readonly=false, type=simple, value=alex, data=, optionsData=, options=[{label=okmAdmin, value=okmAdmin, selected=false}, {label=reviewer, value=reviewer, selected=false}, {label=alex, value=alex, selected=true}], validators=[], table=, optionsQuery=, suggestion=, class=}
I want to get the value of "value" (which is "alex" in this case).

Any advice would be amazing! Thank you guys!

You might cast ( for example if the form field was Input type )

Code: Select all

Input input (Input) executionContext.getContextInstance().getVariable("the field name");
String value = input.getValue();
