Multi-instance step and variable in "Prompt User" mode

Jump to solution

Hi everybody,

 

I have a strange issue in my flow when I want to be prompted for an Input Variable:
In a normal way, all is OK, the step prompt me to assign a value for my variable (Not assign, Otherwise, Prompt User)

 

But when I toggled this step in multi-instance, the run never prompt, and the work is done (it's just a subflow with a Do nothing Step, only for testing)
The value of my variable is automatically set to ${variable} (variable is the name of my variable, for example: toto => assign to ${toto})

I've found nothing about this in the author guide.

Is it a normal operating mode ?

Thank you for the answer.
The work around cancels the parallelism of multi-instance...
But as you said, this is the expected behavior : prompt user is not supported when a flow is part of a multi-instance step.

Hello,

 

That is expected behavior.  Prompt user is not supported when a flow is part of a multi-instance step.  All of the instances of the step are run in parallel and essentially behave headlessly.

 

A work around would be to use a list iterator for the list you passed into the multi-instance step.  You would beable to prompt for each entry in the list.
