  • Hi ,

    You can create an approval workflow on a document library in browser to check these contexts .Association Name means the workflow name . Associator means the user who associate the workflow with the list .

    Start on Item Change and Start on Item Creation means the start options you check for the workflow .Start to Approval Major Version is under start options if you have enabled versioning for the list :’Start this workflow to approve publishing a major version of an item  ’ .Initiator means the one who start the workflow .

    Thanks

  • Hi ,

    Where do you want to use the Workflow Context as a data source ?

    In SharePoint Designer ,you can use the Workflow Context inside a workflow directly .You can also modify the Workflow form in InfoPath
    designer .There you can also use the workflow context .But you cannot get to the workflow context outside  a workflow .

    If you want to get the information about the workflow outcome using custom code after a workflow completes  ,you can refer to this site:

    SharePoint 2010: Perform complex operation in the WorkflowCompleted Event Receiver : http://blog.symprogress.com/2011/09/sp-2010-get-workflow-status-workflowcompleted-event/

    Thanks

  • Hi ,

    These fields store workflow settings .Workflow Context: Manual Start can have two values :Yes and No .If you set the workflow start
    option to ‘Allow this workflow to be manually started ’,then the Workflow Context :Manual Start will return True .The Workflow Context : Manual Start Requires Permissions mean shows whether you have checked the option ‘Require Manage List permissions ’ under ‘Allow this workflow to be manually started’ .If it is checked ,then Workflow Context : Manual Start Requires Permissions will have the value True .

    Thanks
