If you fill your dropdown list with a connected tool you won't have the updated information. if you run the workflow and then check afterwards you will see that it is in this case updated. That is because before running the application, the dropdown will always have the options listed from the last run.
I would recommend to have the tool connected to an outside source (a file with all the options)
@alt_tush In the dropdown configuration, the external file option is the only one I know of that is dynamic and would update at runtime:
You would then be able to reference an external file and it would update the dropdowns whenever the excel file is updated. The app will go grab the file at runtime.
When running on the server, you'll have to make sure the filepath is UNC (\\server\folder\file.yxdb is UNC while H:\folder\file.yxdb is not). You'll also need to make sure the user that runs your jobs can access that filepath.
Yes relative path is working file but problem is when I update the file the additional value is not reflected in dropdown list. It shows me old dropdown values only,
If I rerun the workflow then only it gives mi updated value as well but it is also again I need to deploy the workflow in gallery whenever I do change in excel file. So I want to avoid the deployment process again and again whenever the file is update.
It should automatically update in dropdown in gallery whenever new value added into file.
