Hey there,


I'm a little stuck with a current problem. I'm trying to pass a variable to a workflow. I have to admit I'm still kind of new to the whole ajax-stuff, so maybe I'm just making a really stupid mistake here but after hours of trying and googeling I'm still without a solution

Basically I have a variable in my Workflow called [newSubscriber]. I want the variable to be passed by my script. it would be great if that was possible. My request looks like this


var soap ='<?xml version=\"1.0\" encoding=\"utf-8\"?>' +
     '<soap:Envelope ...>+
      '<soap:Body>' +
          '<StartWorkflowOnListItem xmlns=\"\">' +
            '<itemId>' + itemId + '</itemId>' +
            '<listName>' + listName + '</listName>' +
            '<workflowName>' + wfName + '</workflowName>' +
              '<newSubscriber>' + currentUserLogin + '</newSubscriber>' +
            '</associationData>' +
          '</StartWorkflowOnListItem>' +
       '</soap:Body>' +


I tried it with <associationData> just <Data> inside or outside the StartWorkflowOnListItem-Tag, but it didn't work so far. It would be great if someone could tell me if what I want to do is possible and if yes what I'm doing wrong. Thanks in advance and


Greetings Chris
