Attachments get duplicated across Task Assigments

Aug 4, 2011 8:30 PM

Hi There,


I am seeing some strange behaviour in Workspace.


I have a process with a series of Assign Tasks  which allow attachments.  


In the First in workspace, I attach one item.

When I Complete the Task, the next Task Assignment in Workspace shows the attachment twice

When I Complete that Task, the next Task assignment in Workspace shows the attachment four times...

And so on ...


I am using a List variable in the attachment Input list, and output list at each Task Assign step.  When I record and playback the process, I see that it is growing exponentially.


I am using LC ES2 SP2......  Is this a bug??  Does anybody else see this?

    This is a known issue and has a workaround.
    Where you access your "list of document" variable via XPath, append [1] to the end of the expression.



    In Workbench, navigate to the Attachments tab of the User service.
    In the Output Attachments section, make sure that the dropdown is set to XPath expression not variable.
    Select your variable of type list of document (mine is myAttachments) and append [1] to it.
    It should now appear as /process_data/myAttachments[1].

    Make sure you use this same notation on each User service step.

    I thought this was documented in the Release Notes for ES2/ES2.5. After double checking it does not appear to be there.

    I will make sure that a blog entry is created to cover this issue.


    Known issues are catalogued in the Release that's your best place to start.
