It would be better to do it inside a trigger or plugin, because you can use PMFCancelCase(). Your trigger can query the APP_CACHE_VIEW table to find the cases to cancel and then call PMFCancelCase() for each case in a for loop. You NEED to use PMFCancelCase() if you are not using the Community Edition.

Let's say that you create a separate process to cancel cases. You could have a loop so you never close the case. The one task in the task has a dropdown box to select the user with the variable "selectUser" which uses the SQL query:
SELECT USR_UID, USR_USERNAME FROM USERS
Then the following trigger following that Dynaform would cancel all the cases assigned to that user.
Code: Select all
if (!empty(@@selectUser)) {
   $userId = @@selectUser;
   $fromDate = '2019-01-25 00:00:00';
   //another way to get a date:
   //$fromDate = date("Y-m-d H:i:s", strtotime("-1 month"));

   $sql ="SELECT * FROM APP_CACHE_VIEW WHERE USR_UID='$userId' AND DEL_THREAD_STATUS='OPEN' AND 
      (APP_STATUS='TO_DO' OR APP_STATUS='DRAFT') AND DEL_INIT_DATE > '$fromDate'";
   $aCases = executeQuery($sql);

   $g = new G();
   $g->sessionVarSave();
  
   foreach ($aCases as $aCase) {
        PMFCancelCase($aCase['APP_UID'], $aCase['DEL_INDEX'], $userId);
   }
   $g->sessionVarRestore();
}
If you have to do it with MYSQL in Community Edition:
Code: Select all
UPDATE APPLICATION AS A  
INNER JOIN APP_DELEGATION AS AD ON A.APP_UID=AD.APP_UID 
INNER JOIN USERS AS U ON AD.USR_UID=U.USR_UID 
SET A.APP_STATUS='CANCELLED', A.APP_UPDATE_DATE=NOW() 
WHERE U.USR_USERNAME='admin' AND AD.DEL_THREAD_STATUS='OPEN' AND 
(A.APP_STATUS='TO_DO' OR A.APP_STATUS='DRAFT') AND AD.DEL_INIT_DATE > '2019-01-25 00:00:00' ;

UPDATE APP_DELEGATION AS AD 
INNER JOIN USERS AS U ON AD.USR_UID=U.USR_UID 
INNER JOIN APPLICATION AS A ON AD.APP_UID=A.APP_UID 
SET AD.DEL_FINISH_DATE=NOW(), AD.DEL_THREAD_STATUS='CLOSED' 
WHERE U.USR_USERNAME='admin' AND AD.DEL_THREAD_STATUS='OPEN' AND 
(A.APP_STATUS='TO_DO' OR A.APP_STATUS='DRAFT') AND AD.DEL_INIT_DATE > '2019-01-25 00:00:00' ;
This method of writing directly to database tables doesn't create new rows APP_DELAY for each case which is cancelled, which is important if you ever want to call PMFUnCancelCase().

The SQL commands worked on my installation of PM 3.2.3 Community. What version do you have?

Try going to Admin > Cache List Cache Builder and click on the "Build Cache" button.

If that doesn't work, then you need to use PMFCancelCase() in a trigger.

Hi amos,

i create a trigger in a seperate process to cancell spesific case like below.
this trigger, will read an PM_table name PMT_CANCELL_WELCOME_CALL
this table contain list of case information (Case number, Cancell date, status). and when cancell date is today, the case will be cancell.
i want, the system run the trigger everyday so i dont have to run the task anymore?
is that possible? how to make it happened?

$fetched_queued = "SELECT * FROM PMT_CANCELL_WELCOME_CALL WHERE STATUS = 'QUEUE'";
$fetched_queued = executeQuery($fetched_queued);
foreach($fetched_queued as $queued_key=>$queued_value){
$Caseno=$queued_value['CASENO'];
$CekStillLive=executeQuery("SELECT TAS_UID FROM APP_CACHE_VIEW WHERE APP_NUMBER=$Caseno AND (APP_STATUS='TO_DO' OR APP_STATUS='DRAFT') AND DEL_THREAD_STATUS='OPEN'");
if (!is_array($CekStillLive)) {
executeQuery("Update PMT_CANCELL_WELCOME_CALL set STATUS='COMP' where CASENO=$Caseno");
}else{
$taskuid=$CekStillLive[1]['TAS_UID'];
if ($taskuid!=='4304253695e437cf0d8b586016424364'){

if(strtotime($queued_value['SEND_DATE'])==strtotime(date('Y-m-d'))){
if (PMFCancelCase($CekStillLive['APP_UID'], $CekStillLive['DEL_INDEX'], $CekStillLive['CURRENT_USER_UID'])){
executeQuery("UPDATE PMT_CANCELL_WELCOME_CALL SET STATUS = 'CANCEL' WHERE CASENO = '$Caseno'");

}else{
echo "dont cancell <br>";
}
}else{
echo "dont cancell <br>";
}
}
}
}
