Issue:
Usage of Prompts: Immediate vs Request
Resolution:
The prompt is shown when the object containing the prompt is being generated, whether it is a workflow, a job started directly or a workflow task.

This means:
  • If this is while the object the user is starting is being generated, it will be shown immediately
  • If the object the user has started is already running, the prompt will be shown as an asynchronous request
You can use the following to make sure the object generates at the time you wish:


Want the prompt to display immediately.
Want the prompt to display at runtime.
