How to abandon a Workflow using an Automation Chain

I have the following Automation Chain:

  1. Fetch -> Context documents
  2. Execution Flow -> Run Chain | id = @{Document[“dcns-common:comments”] == empty ? “WF_Show_Warning_Chain” : “WF_Do_Something_Chain”}
  3. Workflow Context -> Cancel Workflow | id = @{workflowInstanceId}

I want to cancel this workflow, but I've got the following error:

Not allowed to follow transition from stateCaused by: org.nuxeo.ecm.core.api.ClientException: Unable to follow transition at org.nuxeo.ecm.core.api.AbstractSession.followTransition( at org.nuxeo.ecm.core.api.impl.DocumentModelImpl$ at org.nuxeo.ecm.core.api.impl.DocumentModelImpl$ at org.nuxeo.ecm.core.api.impl.DocumentModelImpl$RunWithCoreSession.execute( at org.nuxeo.ecm.core.api.impl.DocumentModelImpl.followTransition( at org.nuxeo.ecm.platform.routing.core.impl.GraphNodeImpl.setState( … 160 more Caused by: org.nuxeo.ecm.core.lifecycle.LifeCycleException: Not allowed to follow transition at org.nuxeo.ecm.core.lifecycle.impl.LifeCycleServiceImpl.followTransition( at at org.nuxeo.ecm.core.api.AbstractSession.followTransition( … 165 more

Hello Sergio,

One simple question, do you have started the workflow just before?

It seems to be a problem related to the lifecycle state of the workflow node that cannot update its state to "suspended" because its lifecyclestate rules doesn't fit to this change (so my guess is that the workflow is not started or in another state that cannot be stopped)


Yes, this Automation Chain was called by a workflow node (the first node). Actually, I'm trying to restart the node/task, but I don't know how. As I don't know how, I'm trying to cancel the workflow and the next step will be the Start command. How can I restart the Node Task? How can I solve this problem?
