Adding a comment to the current process instance with a script

To add a comment to a current process instance, you need to create a Comment class instance and add it to the list of comments using the Add() method. Then, create a corresponding event for the comment to be stored in the instance history. 

Script with PublicAPI

Documentation on PublicAPI is available here
The script below is relevant for ELMA up to 3.12.1 inclusive.


using EleWise.ELMA.API;

Script text

PublicAPI.Processes.WorkflowInstance.AddComment(context.WorkflowInstance, "Text"); //Comment author - current user, Send on - current date

Script without PublicAPI

For the script to work properly, add the following namespaces:
using EleWise.ELMA.Common.Models;
using EleWise.ELMA.Model.Services;
using EleWise.ELMA.Services;
using EleWise.ELMA.Model.Events;
using EleWise.ELMA.Workflow.Models;
using EleWise.ELMA.Common.ExtensionPoints;

Script text:

//create comment
var cmnt = InterfaceActivator.Create<Comment> ();
//specify the date of comment creation
cmnt.CreationDate = DateTime.Now;
//specify comment author. Instead of the process instance initiator you can specify a different user
cmnt.CreationAuthor = context.WorkflowInstance.Initiator;
//introduce the text of the comment
cmnt.Text = "Text";
//save the comment
cmnt.Save ();
//add the comment to the instance's list of comments
context.WorkflowInstance.Comments.Add (cmnt);
//create an event for adding it to the instance history
var ActionHandler = Locator.GetServiceNotNull<IEntityActionHandler> ();
var commentAction = Locator.GetService<ICommentActionHandler> ();
var commentActionModel = InterfaceActivator.Create<CommentActionModel> ();
commentActionModel.Comment = cmnt;
var args = EntityActionEventArgs.TryCreate (null, context.WorkflowInstance, WorkflowInstanceActions.AddComment);
if (args != null) {
     commentAction.ProcessEventArgs (args, commentActionModel);
     ActionHandler.ActionExecuted (args);
