Preflight branch is working but the job fails

Jump to solution

Hi, 

(I'm new to the community and to FFC)

 

I have a workflow set up using a Route to check if Preflight is Success. The Preflight and Route works fine but the workflow does not. If I submit a PDF that preflights with error than the workflow fails the entire job. 

I want to use the Preflight in the Route but I dont want the whole job to fail. 

Any experience of this?

 

Using Free Flow Core version 4.0.1.0

Can you post a picture of the preflight configuration? Jobs only fail in preflight if there's a problem executing the preflight.

Hi, 

Info about the job says that the job failed because of "error evaluating the expression". See enclosed pictures (sorry for the one from Acrobat is in Swedish).

Also, can you call this into the hotline? We use an expressions engine from MS (it is part of windows) for the routing node. I suspect the problem is there and not within preflight.

 

Also, can you use that preflight preset on another workflow and run the job?

Hi again,

After some more testing I now disgover that it is the node "Watermark" that causes the fail. When I enter the variable "$FFOrder ID$" into the watermark the job will fail. Remove it and the job is complete. How else can I get the FFC order ID on a page with a watermark?

The $FFOrder ID$ is an value taken from the Manifest order.

If you need the FreeFlow Core Job ID, you should use $FFwfJob.Id$ as the variable.

Hi,

Problem solved with that variable. Thank you!

 

First I had to find out that it was the variables causing the problem, second I used the wrong variable.
