Modifying XPIF in a script

Jump to solution

Since passing variables from a script back into workflow via FFSetVariables.txt file doesn't seem to work in many cases, I'd like to modify the XPIF ticket instead.

So as I understand, I need to:

  • specify $FFxpf$ as a parameter in External node
  • in a script open the file specified in $FFxpf$, make any modifications, close the file

Is this correct? Would the nodes following External already take the information from modified XPIF file automatically?

Correct. $FFxpf$ points to the xpif that is the job ticket that is updated as a job is processed by a Workflow.

Here is an example of how to modify the XPIF. In this case by changing the jobname.
