Send Message via Rest API Bonita 7.10.3 - Community

End process with error using REST API

Hi every body,

I am currently facing a problem with attached document in the workflow.

The attached document is analyzed with the antivirus and there is a chance that the document will be put in quarantine and I cannot modify the workflow to integrate this case.

Knowing that, my approach consist to create a script to verify if my document is on the quarantine folder or not, in this case I will end my workflow with error or exception.

Can I interrupt my workflow using the REST API? if yes, how can I do so?

How to retrieve the local files on server side with file name from front pages?

Hi everyone,

I currently encountered a problem. I have a form where users can select several file names among a lot of names, then we'll lead users to another application page with the selected name(s). Since this redirection does not reflect a process or a task at backend( the pool), I have no way to do some operations( like retrieving the files in my repository by names via Groovy) to manage the documents variable, which means I can't display the files by document_ref in my file viewer.

So is there any method that can help me to realize that?

Is there any way to know the total amount of elements that the API call will return without executing the call or calling only a part of the elements

Is there any way to know the total amount of elements that the API call will return without executing the call or calling only a part of the elements? I just need to know the quantity, not the content.
