File variable download and upload on the same embedded form

Hi All,

I’m trying to set up two controls for one File variable on the same embedded form, like this:

    <div class="form-group row">
        <label  class="col-sm-4 col-form-label">Input file:</label>
        <div class="col-sm-8">
            <a cam-file-download="input_file" ng-model="input_file_download"></a>
        <input type="file"
               cam-max-filesize="10000000" />

But I’m getting error Form failure: Cannot add variable with name input_file: already exists.
Is it possible to place File upload button and download link on the same form?

I don’t have the answer for this form field, but if you get stuck and need a option:

The out-of-box file upload function provides upload and download functionality. To have files available for download you just need to pre-populate a form variable as a base64.

Hi Stephen,
Thank you, it looks very attractive, I should definitely study it in more detail.

Hi Stephen,

thats really impressive!
Unfortunately, I’m not so familiar with gradle/kotlin/springboot etc. I’ve managed to run formio in embedded form, but I can’t understand how to build and register your plugins in the right way.

This is what I did (I’m using Camunda Run EE): I’ve copied font-awesome-4.7.0/., builder.html, formio.html and formio.full-4.11.3.min.css into internal/webapps/static/forms folder and restarted my Camunda Run server. As the result, I can open http://localhost:8080/forms/builder.html to run local formio builder, and I can use embedded:/forms/formio.html?path=/forms/myform.json as form key in my user task.

But I understand that I can’t use Server validation feature as well as Get-Form-Variables Command Security, because required plugins are not installed.
Can you make a short guide how to correctly build the plugins for Camunda Run spring boot, and how to install them correctly?

Thank you and regards,

Ya I will add a doc on how to use with run.

Based on this: Plugins for Camunda BPM Run

We just need to generate you a additional jar for spring boot usage with the annotation.

@Alexei you should be able to modify the processes.xml / bpm-processes.xml file similar to:

and then configure the file as:

@StephenOTT above you have mentioned:
“Ya I will add a doc on how to use with run.

Can you please let me know if this is done? We are using Camunda BPM Run and we are not sure how “camunda-formio-plugin” should be used in that case. Thanks a lot!
