Upload files with action buttons in Planning Analytics Workspace 2.0.77

By STUART KING posted Tue May 17, 2022 12:54 PM

This video demonstrates the new file upload feature for action buttons in Planning Analytics Workspace 2.0.77.  

This feature allows end users to upload files to be used as a data source for a Turbo Integrator process.  This new capability should be used as a replacement if the classic Turbo Integrator editor widget was being used to support users uploading files as a data source.  The file name can be passed as a string parameter value to the Turbo Integrator process to support different file names.  Assuming a string parameter pFileName the following code can be used in the prolog procedure to set the file data source to the uploaded file.

Thanks Stuart - very useful feature for us. Next is the ability to upload an XLSX and have PAW do the necessary conversions in the background.

@Mark Wragg - looks to be any variable - the linkage is done when assigning the Control Type as File to the parameter.​

Hi Stuart,

thanks for this.

Couple of questions (and apologies if I misunderstood anything or the questions appear dumb),

We have noticed that if you create a process in Architect and then modify it in PAW the process can become corrupted.
Am I correct in thinking that this feature should only be applied to processes that were originally created in PAW?

Does it go without saying that pFileName is now a sort of reserved parameter name that should be avoided in processes?
