How to configure this action

Fields for this action

  • Process

    • Select a Workflow to update from a list of all Workflows available on your team. The list only includes Workflows you have permission to view.
      • You can also reference a Workflow stored in a field. Change the left hand drop-down to Use table via field then select from any field that is part of the process. Learn more.
      • If necessary, you can enter the Workflow ID directly. Change the left hand drop-down to Use table by ID then enter the ID manually. Learn more.
  • Field name

    • Enter the field name, as it appears in the url or select a field dialog.
    • The field name can always be found in the URL when configuring a field. If you enter a new field anywhere in a Workflow and select it to configure it, the field name is at the end of the Url.
      • Example: example.pushbot.com/build/{processID}/tasks/{task-name}/fields/{field-name}
  • Display name

    • Input the new display name of the template field. May be defined as text or a {{field-reference}}. If left blank, the display name of the field will not be changed.
  • Example

    • Enter a new example for the template field. May be defined as text or a {{field-reference}}. If left blank, the example for the field will not be changed.
  • Default value

    • Enter a new default value for the template field. May be defined as text or a {{field-reference}}. If left blank, the default value for the field will not be changed.
  • Permission

    • Select the permission level for the template field. If left blank, the permission level for the field will not be changed.

    • The four permission levels are:

      • Public: Fields are visible to anyone interacting with this Workflow
      • Internal: Fields are hidden from non-team members
      • Confidential: Fields are hidden from everyone except admins and designated users
      • Highly Confidential: Fields are hidden from everyone except for designated users
  • Users with default field access

    • If the field’s permission is set to Confidential or Highly Confidential, input the username or email of users who can find and edit the process template, separated by commas. Groups can also be entered. If users are not specified, it will default to those with edit permission.

What will this output?

This action will update an Instance Field based on the configured changes and does not have any output fields. Check the Workflow Builder page in the Triggers and Fields section to see the relevant changes.

Sorry about that. What was the most unhelpful part?
