Store Data for workflow functions
We have a list saved in the Defect UI that is populated from a template as projects are created. The list contains codes that are now deprecated and we have a function that will lookup the new codes. The new code will be added on-demand to each project (we have hundreds of projects) via the Customize Workflow scripts. What I would like to do is not copy a static mapping to each project as the codes list will continue to grow, I would like to have a central database or text file that every project can access to do the lookup when the function is called from the UI. Is there a place/way to store the lookup mapping for the codes which consists of basically old code, new code, description.
Re: Store Data for workflow functions
You can use site configuration to specify which lists are exempt from template-linked customization.
This will allow you to reference the same list in template workflow code, but the list will only contain the mapping values needed for that project.
