Hi All,

To check if I get this,:

With custom workflow actions you can "add" parameters in your workflow by UI. . To enter or change parameters you must/should use below components:




Above settings are created in the deploy of the app (containing the action)  and makes use of "app-settings"  to store setting objects.

Your settings are automatically created when your app is deployed. 

Settings use "App Settings" as an object store.




If I am correct, you can play around with this "custom action", but the react part is only shown in the setup mode of the action.

So in other words workflow's are not meant to have any "direct" user interaction, the you have to create an app!

Hi Henk,

I am not sure if I fully understand your question, what you mean with "direct user interaction". Workflow actions are actually part of an app. It is up to you if you want to add a UI to your app or just have custom actions, like we have it for the slack for workflows app. 

For the UI part of a custom action we recommend to use the "automation-action" components already highlighted by you.


Also I can share with you a video about custom actions and settings, where I do a quick demo, from 09:58
