I hope the call to activity is onClick of either a button or link similar component ... in such cases could you please try Launch Harness - Replace current option and share your observations...


note: OOTB activity Show-Harness is the API generally referred to replace current harness via Activity rule

It's like in URL I'll hard code to call a activity based on which I have to call a flow(I used harness to script which calls the flow). There is not button or link click event

hi Dharan,

What is the requirement for you to start an Harness and from there start a flow?

Based on parameter on URL, different flows should launch without any button or link clicks.

could you please try constructing the URL...


openWorkByURL("pyActivity=Work-.New&InsClass="+currentWorkPool+"&FlowType=<FLOWNAME>&FolderType=pyDefault&HarnessPurpose=New&pyNextURL=", "Work","true");


calling this as a script onload may help...
