Stop the WF

In WF having Macro which is connected to multiple Dynamic Inputs.


In first dynamic input files checks the condition that date present in file is matching with the date selected from user and returns true or false.

If it returns false then it should stop the WF. Without reading the remaining dynamic inputs from the macro.

Hi @sneha_bhiwagade1 


I think Message Tool could help you with this.


You can set up an expression to stop the Workflow and throw you a message with this tool.

Hi @sneha_bhiwagade1 ,


connect the output of your macro (my input) to the message tool and configure it like this:


This should do the trick!

Thanks for the Solution.


You are taking the Input Date directly from the text input tool and it works fine. But in my case I have to take the input date from the from the first Dynamic input tool connected to macro. If it results false then to stop the WF without reading other dynamic Inputs2 to dynamic Input5 from macro.

Use a Block Until Done Tool after your "Macro".


Put the 1st Dynamic Input in the 1 output of the Block Until Done and add a Message Tool to throw an error.
