How to Close Approval or Response Required based Notifications from backend?

By | February 9, 2015

Earlier we have seen how to close FYI based notification. Here in this article lets see how to close Approval/Response based notification from backend.

Since its Approval/Response based notification, first we need to set the Response RESULT value using API wf_notification.setattrtext and then close notification by responding to it using API wf_notification.respond.

Syntax

--
--Setting 'RESULT' value
--
   wf_notification.setattrtext
                 (nid    => p_notification_id,
                  aname  => 'RESULT',
                  avalue => p_result_value);
--
--Responding to the Notification
--
wf_notification.respond
                 (nid             => p_notification_id,
                  respond_comment => 'RESULT',
                  responder       => p_result_value);

Example

BEGIN
--
--Setting 'RESULT' value
--
   wf_notification.setattrtext (nid         => '4754620', --Notification ID
                                aname       => 'RESULT', --This is a constant value, will always be same
                                avalue      => 'APPROVED' --This value can be anything, depends on your workflow
                               );
--
--Responding to the Notification
--
   wf_notification.respond (nid             => '4754620', --Notification ID
                            respond_comment =>  'Approved From backend', --This can be any user comment
                            responder       =>  'STHALLAM' --user name who responds
                           );
   COMMIT;
END;

Points to Note:

  1. aname will always be ‘RESULT
  2. avalue can be anything depending upon the Action resultant value configured in the workflow definition
