Dynamic pick list values, based on a Workflow Item attribute


Thomas Becker (156) | asked Feb 17 '20, 9:43 a.m.

I'm using one RTC CCM Project Area for several projects. Therefore I want to show in an Attribute of the Workflow Item, which project(s) is/are affected by this Workflow Item. 

Normally this is easy to be done by defining a pick list attribute. 
My problem is, that the projects are created in a database by another tool. So the pick list values must be dynamic and independent from the RTC-Workflow-Template. 
Is there a possibility in RTC to create such a dynamic pick-list-attribute?

Picklist means an attribute type of list such as enumerationList or stringList.
  • You can try using enumerationList with an enumeration that is stored in the database (vs the process template).
  • You could also use a string list, I guess.

For both the critical thing would be to make sure the values are created consistently and who can create them.
The term workflow item attribute does not work for me. So not sure what it is supposed to mean.

Please be aware that database backed enumerations can not be used if process sharing is in place.
