SmartObject Refresh in K2D4SP... new pro...


I have a smartobject that we changed the schema on. So I

1) Exported sodx file from Service Tester

2) Opened in K2 Studio

3) Added the properties

4) Deployed back to the K2 server.


Then in SharePoint, under "K2 Designer for SharePoint Management", configured SmartObject Access.


We had already added the smartobject and it was used in some processes. So I edited the smartobject and checked the boxes for the additional properties to be visible.


Now, when I open the process that's using the smartobject, the new properties are not listed. But if I drag out a new step, they are there.


How do I refresh the existing steps to see the new properties?


Reset a date field?

I have a process data field of type date.  The initial value is "empty" (see attached).  During my process the value of this field changes, but at some point I may need to clear its value (i.e. set it back to empty).  How can I accomplish this?


I tried setting the value to  "01/01/0001", but this still shows as a valid date in our reporting.  I need it to be empty/null.

Difficulty in consuming XML Web services...

Hi There,


I have an established SOAP web service that prvides various information from LOB systems throughout the organisation. The web service returns 2 types: string or XML dataset. When testing the the string return types in the service object tool everyhting works as expected, however, when invoking a web method that returns an XML dataset I get garbage back.

I have a call open with K2 at athe moment but I;m not making much progress. I have heard that I might need to define the XML schema for the XML dataset but I have no idea where I am meant to doing this.


Ultimately I am trying to populate a drop down list in a smart form with the data returned for from this web method. If any one has had this issue with XML web services and K2 please get in touch.
