Add JavaScript objects to the workflow scratchpad

Add JavaScript objects to the workflow scratchpad

You can add any JavaScript object to the scratchpad if the object can be represented as JSON.

Whenever possible, group related values into a single JavaScript object and add this object to the scratchpad instead of storing each value individually.

    // complex JavaScript object
    var joe = {
           name:  'Joe Watkins',
            age:  45,
            job:  'Electrical Engineer',
        contact:  ['760-555-1212', 'joew@fastereng.net'],
        vaction:  { start: new Date("October 12, 2013"), days: 5 }
    }
 
     passUserToAnotherActivityViaScratchpad( joe );
 
    function passUserToAnotherActivityViaScratchpad(usr) {
	     workflow.scratchpad.user = usr;
    }
