How do I use a connector on a button?


Hi there,

Bonita Studio 6.3.7, Java, Windows 8.1

I have need to execute a connector on a button on a form how do I do this?

For example, I have a form with a table of documents, for each document I have a Download Button. On the button I want to execute a connector to download the document from the Document Management System.

many thanks in advance,

regards Seán

Hi, Try to use file widget instead of button(submit,simple)

The file widget does not work as required and is pretty, well lets say not really worth it.

This is a big area that Bonita I think needs to work on.

The BIG reason I want to do Connectors on Button is to facilitate use of a Document Management System such as OpenKM or Alfresco.

I suppose the way to accomplish what i want to do is...

have a table of documents with check boxes, a go get them button, and when clicked call a OpenKM REST call to the system to download the selected documents

Personally I would like to do as much inside Bonita than outside and see a button with actions available so I can call a connector correctly.
