Know when workflow 'only when' is using a deleted field

Hey All,

Does anyone know of a way to search for a workflow that is using a deleted field in the only when field.

It doesn’t cause an error, so I would have no idea if something isn’t working.

I hope there is an easy way to solve this.

All the best,

Hi @ben4! Try using the search tool at the top right of your screen (magnifying glass). This will give you a list of anything using that element/field.

If this solved your problem, go ahead and click the check mark to mark as solved!

Thank you for responding to me. I dont think that will work as I have already deleted the field.

Can you think of a way to search for workflows that deleted fields are associated with?

Yeah, It’s rubbish, I don’t understand the logic behind it at all.
Unfortunately, I don’t think there is a way. But I would love to know if you find one :slight_smile:

Restore the deleted field.

Not sure you understand. I deleted the field as it was no longer needed.I just need to know where there were any only when’s that used that field so I can update them.

You should be able to restore the field long enough to use the search function to locate any workflows that were using it.

Did you get it figured out @ben4?

Before deleting a field (ie fieldXY), I rename it z_fieldXY and I do a search for all fields as indicated above. I erase the fields permanently once in a while. It is true that it will be easier to have all the errors immediately and make the corrections.

Thanks everyone for the suggestions. I got what I needed. I needed to know if there was a way to do it after the fact. I am going to go through the entire app for other reasons, so I will just look to see what is wrong. Thank you :slight_smile:
