WorkFlow Profile Rename Possible via BR ?


Hi Team,

Is there any magical code / function to rename the workflow using some business rule.

or direct update in the table ?




Regards and Thanks

Hi Darpan!
I am no magician but did you try to use the SQL Editor to query the table WorkflowProfileHierarchy. You will find the ProfileName there as a field. I have never tested it as it seems dirty, but technically that could work. Can you give me a feedback on that… I am curious.
I do not know how to change WF names from BR. (I think you can not)

Hi Nicolas,

As you mentioned it’s dirty… we are even afraid to do that.

2 tables are in there (as per our knowledge) which needs to be updated, not sure on any other.

There is currently not a supported BRApi that will enable you to rename a workflow via a business rule. I would suggest creating an enhancement for this as it would be nice to be able to both create a workflow and update a workflow's name via BRApi in a business rule.

Be careful with renaming Workflows, there are a lot of other objects dependant on Workflow names.

I tend to just export the WF to xml, update the name, reload the xml file, then delete the old WF.

ChristianW is right. Writing directly to the tables is not a good idea and if you are on the cloud may not even be possible.
