Enhancement Request: Ability to Retreive Entry ID from Entry Created from Replicate Entry Activity

asked on June 16

Currently the replicate entries activity in Workflow can only give you the entry ID of the output parent folder. It would be very beneficial if it could also give you tokens related to the document that was created in the destination repository such as it's entry ID.

We can look into it, but it's not as straightforward as it sounds. Replicate Entries can take an entry listing, like the results from a Search Repository activity.

Miruna,

From you're reply I'm not sure you understood the request correctly. The idea would be that after the entry has been replicated to the destination repository, I could use another activity such as Assign Metadata and point it to the output entry from the replicate entries activity. Currently I can only get access to the parent folder information.

I understand that may not be straight forward though as you would have to query after the entry is created to get that information, but it would be very helpful.

Right, but currently Workflow doesn't know if you're replicating one entry or 100,000 at a time. 

The replicated entries generate entry created events in the new repository, so you can get to them from that side.

I understand what you're saying now. If there is a way to add it to the activity that would be great. If not, I can understand and we will find ways to work around it.
