Problems with debugging workflow variables

Hi,

i have a small problem with debugging variables that are passed to a workflow. I have a small function which will dump all variables which are passed to a workflow, on the 4.1 version i get as output:

[2013-02-22 12:58:58.087] [I] Start :: DebugTest :: ID :: BB8080808080808080808080808080802D82808001319023659169c92d91d11b0 :: Caller :: DebugTest
[2013-02-22 12:58:58.090] [D] Key :: inDebug :: objectType :: boolean :: value :: true
[2013-02-22 12:58:58.090] [D] Key :: inString :: objectType :: string :: value :: test string
[2013-02-22 12:58:58.094] [D] Key :: inCluster :: objectType :: VC:ClusterComputeResource :: value :: ClusterA
[2013-02-22 12:58:58.095] [D] Key :: inArray :: objectType (No match) :: Array :: value :: 1,2
[2013-02-22 12:58:58.132] [D] Key :: inVMMachine :: objectType :: VC:VirtualMachine :: value :: VMTEST
[2013-02-22 12:58:58.136] [D] Key :: inNumber :: objectType (No match) :: number :: value :: 4711

In 5.1 i get:

[2013-02-22 11:40:34.676] [I] Start :: DebugTest :: ID :: BB8080808080808080808080808080802D82808001319023659169c92d91d11b0 :: Caller :: DebugTest
[2013-02-22 11:40:34.692] [D] Key :: inNumber :: objectType (No match) :: number :: value :: 4711
[2013-02-22 11:40:34.692] [D] Key :: inVMMachine :: objectType :: VC:VirtualMachine :: value :: undefined
[2013-02-22 11:40:34.692] [D] Key :: inCluster :: objectType :: VC:ClusterComputeResource :: value :: undefined
[2013-02-22 11:40:34.707] [D] Key :: inArray :: objectType (No match) :: Array :: value :: 1,2
[2013-02-22 11:40:34.707] [D] Key :: inString :: objectType :: string :: value :: test string
[2013-02-22 11:40:34.707] [D] Key :: inDebug :: objectType :: boolean :: value :: true

I have attached the sample workflow,

Regards

Your code looks good... but I get the same problem as you... I wrote an article a while back on vCOTeam.info (http://www.vcoteam.info/learn-vco/how-to-retrieve-workflow-execution-details.html) for retreiving workflow execution details, similar to what you are doing here. When I run that workflow against my test runs of yours, the VirtualMachine objects and the Cluster objects display properly.. BUT, when I use my code inside your workflow to process the currently running workflow's inputs - same results. I would recommend opening a case with support if this is something important for your work. The values SHOULD be getting displayed.

If my answer resolved or helped you, please mark it as Correct or Helpful to award points. Thank you! Visit http://www.vcoteam.info & http://blogs.vmware.com/orchestrator for vRealize Orchestrator tips and tutorials - @TechnicalValues on Twitter
