attach a file to an activiti workflow

Jump to solution

I am currently developping an app in which i am using alfresco as ged and activiti as a process engine.

I want to create a process in which i am using a file stored in alfresco as attachment,so how can i make a link between the process and the file.I thinked about creating a mysql db table in which i have process id and file id.

is that a good idea or there is other sollutions ? 

By the way i am using activiti 5.22

Thank you in advance Smiley Happy

The answer really depends on the use case. What is purpose of the link, is that to be used in your process in other steps or is that for something else(future, other application etc) outside the process scope? If it is the latter, storing that in a table with a reference sounds good. If it is to be used in the same process, setting the ids as process variables should be enough.
