Reseting tabs after a workflow start
It is easy to add a workflow tab for folders, but after the workflow start tabs are reseted to default one. It means that it needs to open the workflow tab two times, ie. to start and to add participants. Is there a simple, configuration way to change it ?
This tab cache reset has been fixed indeed in https://jira.nuxeo.com/browse/NXP-13244
The cache is reset only when workflows are cancelled or finished.
I assume you are using version 5.8.
There are mainly two ways to start a workflow from the UI:
Using the “Workflow process” widget, displayed automatically by Nuxeo in the “Summary” tab of documents. If you start a workflow from there then you are right: the “Workflow” tab is not automatically open. But Nuxeo now displays the task below the other information => There is no need to display the tab:
If you configure your application and add a “User Action” in studio (for example, a Toolbar button), then in the chain bound to this element, you probably call Workfolws > Start Workflow (give the id of the workflow, check the “start” checkbox). In this case, the “Your Tasks” information is not displayed, so you may want to switch to the Workflow tab, which requires two steps, 2 operations to add to the chain: User Interface > Raise Seam Events
User Interface > Change Tab
Thank you for your answer, but according to your first point, there is assumption, that "Summary" tab is shown (it is not true for folderish document) and it is the default (first) tab (it is not always true).
The second point has a disadventure that it is a bit difficult to select different workflows when a user starts the action.
Yes you're right, I used shortcuts here and the default, out-of-the-box examples for a File, for sure, sorry for that!
And happy it is fixed for next 5.8HF/FastTrack :-)
