Scenario: Upload a document, attach meta data and kick off a workflow…Simple Eh!!

Well not quite. The workflow kicks off, but the xml data structure is blank.

Well finally we figured it out. This is a known issue, the workaround is involving these steps:

If the SharePoint Workflow Integration process is associated with a document library: -Add the ’SharePoint Documents’ event to the desired activity.
-At the ’Event Name and Action’ screen of the wizard select the ’Get Document’s Metadata’.
-At the ’Get Document Metadata’ screen enter the SharePoint Site URL etc. and for the ’File Name’ map it to the SPIntegrationData -> SPData -> ItemName field.
-Then at the ’Document Metadata’ screen you can map the document library columns to process data fields or a process xml field.
