Good morning everyone!

I have a problem, i desinged a simple workflow where the status of webcontent ist directly converted into the approves status. But it doesn´t work. Here is my javascript that i wrote: I want to catch the ID of a User and when this user makes a post, the web content should be directly approved.

<scriptTask id="scripttask1" name="Approve" scriptFormat="javascript">
<script><![CDATA[import com.liferay.portal.kernel.workflow.WorkflowStatusManagerUtil;
import com.liferay.portal.service.UserLocalServiceUtil;

user =;

roles = user.getRoleIds();
status = "Deny";
for (i = 0; i < roles.length; i++) {
if (roles == 15) {
status = "Approve";

WorkflowStatusManagerUtil.updateStatus(, workflowContext); ]]></script>

But i get the following error:

14:15:51,816 INFO [http-bio-8080-exec-5][WorkflowDefinitionManagerImpl:58] Try to deploy process DirectApprove

Why is workflow context undefiened??

Thanks for your help!!!
