I am currently running workflows using both the REST and SOAP methods from the outside systems. Since the soap system doesnt have a easy way to get a return status what is the best way to make a return status for a completed or failed workflow. What I have been trying to do is us the workflow token object but everything I try to use that it always says that the workflow is still running. Any help will be helpful thanks!
Have you been over my article here? http://bit.ly/restvco -- In it, I review the state of workflow tokens, when I did that, I was getting valid returns.
yea but is there a way to make that call within my vCO workflow so I can put the "completed, failed, running" as an output parameter for an outside system?
If you are using vCO to make the REST call to another vCO server, then of course - simply write a workflow that wraps the REST operation call, then adjust your output string as desired based on the actual return of the REST call and set that value as a workflow output.
