Workflow Action YAML Configuration Reference

Workflow Action YAML Configuration Reference

You can define a workflow action client extension with a client-extension.yaml file.

Usage Details

This client-extension.yaml file defines a workflow action and an OAuth user agent:

    name: Easy Workflow Action 1
    oAuth2ApplicationExternalReferenceCode: easy-oauth-application-user-agent
    resourcePath: /easy-workflow/action/1
    type: workflowAction

        - Liferay.Headless.Admin.Workflow.everything
    type: oAuthApplicationUserAgent

The required resourcePath property defines the workflow action handler’s location. Point to any implementation of a workflow action handler that’s accessible as an external application (for example, a Java Spring Boot application). This value is combined with the homePageURL value of the OAuth2 application profile to form the complete URL.

Workflow action client extensions require OAuth2 application profiles to secure requests triggered by workflow actions in Liferay. The example above defines an additional OAuth user agent client extension for this profile, and the oAuth2ApplicationExternalReferenceCode property references that client extension’s key value.

The sample workspace demonstrates adding a workflow action client extension.

YAML Properties

These properties are specific to workflow action client extensions:
