In this article, we will attempt to show you on how to start a process from a hyperlink (Datalist Hyperlink Action) in a Datalist.
Figure 1: Assign Custom ID in Run Process element in Userview Builder
In the Run Process element itself, assign a Custom ID to give it a specific identification so that it can be called easily later on.
Figure 2: Assign Hyperlink to the Run Process element's Custom ID in Datalist Builder's Hyperlink Action
In the Datalist Hyperlink Action's properties, key in the Custom ID earlier into it.
Optional: You may also want to initialize the "Run Process" form with a value.
In the "Hyperlink Parameters", key in the corresponding parameter name with the matching field ID. (E.g. In the form, it has a field called "title"). Remember to add in the prefix "fk_" or "fke_" to the parameter name. The latter one is used as a flag to allow the field to be edited.
You will also need to map the form into the "Run Process" activity in your process's activity mapping.
