Good to Know

  • If a custom process instance naming convention uses a variable based on a value from a form control, it is recommended to set the form control as Required on the eForm.
  • If a custom process instance naming convention is defined using one or more process data variables, and the value for all the variables is null, instead of showing a blank process instance name, the default process instance name is used.
