Hello Ibrahim,

What is the name of the column in your returns object where the number will be stored? In the article on the academy website, it's using a column named "Code", but your column name is likely different, possibly something with a prefix in front of it, like maybe UsrCode?

You'll need to update the column name in two places:

  1. The conditional flow formula (replace "Code" with your column name)
  2. Save number to entity column (replace "Code" with your column name)

Also, it would be a good idea to verify the names of the process elements. The academy article assumes they are named "UserTask1", etc.   Verify the following:

  1. The task titled "Generate ordinal number", verify it's name by clicking the three-dots icon on the top of it's properties, then select "Advanced mode" and there you'll find it's name in the "Code" field. You'll need to update the code in your screenshot titled "Get entity schema to generate number" with this name - replace "UserTask1" with this value, if different.
  2. Do the same with the "UserTask1" value in the code in your screenshot titled "Save number to entity column", if different.

Lastly, if it is still not working, please post the error you receive when you publish.


Dear Ryan,


Thank you for your answer, it is very helpful. Additionally to doing everything from the message above you have to put the whole process In the "Event sub-process element".
