You request input parameters from users during a workflow run by adding a User Interaction schema element to the workflow. When a workflow encounters a User Interaction element, it suspends its run and waits for the user to provide the data that it requires.

Create a workflow.

Open the workflow for editing in the workflow editor.

Add some elements to the workflow schema.


Drag a User Interaction element to the appropriate position in the workflow schema.


Link the User Interaction element to the elements that precede and follow it.


Click the User Interaction element to display its properties tabs in the bottom half of the Schema tab.


Provide a name and a description for the user interaction in the Info tab.


Click Save.

You added a user interaction element to a workflow. When the workflow reaches this element, it waits for information from the user before continuing its run.

Set the attribute of the user interaction to limit permission to respond to the user interaction to a user or user group. See Set the User Interaction Attribute.
