I'm looking for some guidance on a request I am trying to build out. I am building out a complex approval process in which the end user has to enter 3 fields into a form and then the customer information would populate(13 additional fields used for validation). Right now I have tested using a bot to go out to our core system and retrieve the cusomter data. This then emails the end user with that information for them to proceed. This is unacceptable to them. What they want is once the 3 data fields are entered, a call to core would occur and retrive the information in order for them to continue with the process. I see the data lookup control requires an HTTPS for an API call. Right now we are using http and working on converting our API to HTTPS. My question is, once we get the API to HTTPS, how will the form perform? Will it be similar to the SharePoint data lookup where each field is a drop down?
My second question is, is there a way to program a workflow to auto launch a form? If I continue using the bot to call our core, I would have to use two worklfows. One for the initial 3 data fields, which woudl call the core to add 13 more. I then would need those 16 fields to populate a new form and launch for the end user (kind of like a new and edit form in SharePoint). So if I go this route, how would I auto launch that second form? I know it would be a component workflow but after that I am lost.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
