Example

NOTE: The sample AML code below can be copied and pasted directly into the Steps panel of the Task Builder.

Description

This sample task demonstrates the use of sessions as well as AutoMate's ability to start all workflows that exist in a given site. A Get workflows activity is used to retrieve the workflows from a particular site and and populates a dataset with results. The dataset is then looped. During each iteration, a Start workflow activity starts the next workflow on the list . In addition, each running workflow's instance ID is retrieved and written to a file for reporting or auditing purposes.

NOTE: This sample is for AML viewing purposes only. In order for the task to work, it must be modified to fit your SharePoint credentials.
