What is the “Integration” check box for in the workflow Start task?
Assuming you are referring to the Start task of an asynchronous workflow, when this property is selected, the workflow is used to migrate data from staging tables in IBM TRIRIGA records. This type of workflow is used extensively in IBM TRIRIGA DataConnect.
Check out this IBM Knowledge Center topic about DataConnect that describes the “Integration” check box: Workflow task settings.

I’ve found that there’s an email address in both triPeople and My Profile. Sometimes these two email address can be different. Which one will be used when I create a triNotificationHelper in a workflow to send a notification out?
Emails will be sent to the email ID present in the My Profile of the person that you intend. Both triPeople and its My Profile will always have the same address unless you explicitly change it in the My Profile record, because whenever you make any changes to triPeople by revising, it will be carried forward to My Profile when saved or activated.
When a record is in a read-only state, any form action text links (not a button) on the form no longer run the workflow assigned to the OnClick event for the action. The “busy spinner” comes up and the action is never taken. The only recourse is to close the form window. If the record is editable, the form action text links run their workflows as expected.

The “Grant Security Access – MASSUPDATE” workflow does not filter the groups and licenses correctly, because various tasks in this workflow are not set correctly.
The “Update Records” action on the Grant Security Access form was creating a duplicate of Groups/Licenses on People and My Profile records if the Groups/Licenses selected were the same as the ones added on People and My Profile. Moving forward, we resolved the issue by modifying the workflow “Grant Security Access – MASSUPDATE” to not create any duplicate Groups/Licenses if they are already added to People and My Profile. We also fixed another issue, to create new Groups if the “Clear Existing Security?” check box is checked.

I noticed that the smart section won’t update even if the association changed. Is there any other place that the smart section is stored beside the SYSKEY column?
If you want to update a smart section when a specific association is made from some other process, you will need to trigger a workflow on the association event, and than map the “Associated Object” as a source map to the smart section.
In the Procurement tab of the Capital Project form, we have a section that allows a user to add some purchase orders. An “Add” action exist in this section. If the user selects this action, the Purchase Order form is loaded automatically on the screen and the user can fill the values for all of the fields. Our business requirement is to not load the Purchase Order form if no contacts exist (with a particular role) in the Contact tab of the Capital Project form. How can we do this?
One option is to hide the “Add” action by default, and then use a Modify Metadata task to show the Add action after a contact has been added. You would also need to run a Modify Metadata task to hide the Add action if all of the contacts were removed.
[Admin: This post is related to the 12.06.15 post about using a workflow (and Modify Metadata task) to change to a different form.]
I would like to know if there is a way to compare two lists of triContactRole records and find the records that are not in both lists. The case is as follows: (1) One list of triContactRole records is associated to the triCapitalProject object. (2) The other list of records is associated to the triPurchaseOrder object. (3) So I would like to copy the triContactRole records from capital project to purchase order, but only those that do not already exist in purchase order. Is there any way to do that?
One way might be to have a workflow where a Query task grabs all of the resulting contact role records associated to the capital project record. Then have an Iterator (Iter) task that goes through each of those records. Within the Iter, you can have another Query task grabbing the contact role records of the purchase order record using the Iter record as a filter. Then have a Switch task that says if the result count of the second Query task = 0, then create the contact role record for the purchase order record.
