From my visual flow, I need to approve a record that's in the pending stage of an approval process. I've been able to get as far as creating a flow that gets the pending ProcessInstance of the record in need of approval. What's the next step? Should I Fast Create a ProcessInstance record with an Approved status and a related ProcessWorkItem record?

Did you try "Submit for Approval" option under Static Actions ?

  • The challenge is not submitting the record for approval, it's approving a record that's already been submitted for approval.

  • I'm sorry but I cannot recall and I no longer have access to that org to take a look. I do recall though that I ended up not using visual flow for the approval.
