Get Search Dialog
Use the Get Search Dialog action to retrieve a URL that is used to open a selection dialog. Use selection dialogs when you want your user to pick a resource from another application. For more information, see OSLC selection dialogs.
Complete the following steps to use the Get Search Dialog action in your workflow:
1. Drag the Get Search Dialog action under OSLC to the canvas, place the pointer on the action, and then click or double-click the action. The Get Search Dialog window opens.
2. Edit the Label, if needed. By default, the label name is the same as the action name.
3. To add an OSLC connector type, refer to Supported OSLC Connector Type.
If you previously added a connector type, select the appropriate Connector Type, and under Connector Name, select the connector.
4. Click TEST to validate the connector.
5. Click MAP CONNECTOR to execute the action using a connector that is different from the one that you are using to populate the input fields. In the Runtime Connector field, provide a valid OSLC connector name. For more information about MAP CONNECTOR, see Using Map Connector.
6. In the Service Provider Identifiers field, select the service provider identifier from the list or specify a comma-separated list of service provider identifier URIs.
When you select a service provider identifier from the list, you have to traverse through the hierarchy of the service provider catalog to the service provider. A service provider catalog can contain another service provider catalog. For more information, see OSLC service provider concepts.
7. Under the Filters group, in the Resource Type list, select the resource type to filter the output.
Click Add to add multiple resource types to the filter. Click to delete any resource type filters that you added.
8. In the Locale list, select the preferred response language. If the OSLC server supports the selected language, then you get your response in that language. The default locale is en.
9. Click Show additional fields.
10. Under the Headers group, click Add to add a custom header to the request. Provide a Key and Value pair.
Click Add to add multiple key-value pairs. Click to delete any custom header that you added.
11. Click Done.
