Whenever I am executing the task with Predefined function Insert Data into a Inline Jiffy table, I get the error message as "Column not present in Table", although the column is present in the Inline table. Image description

This error occurs when the column name you provided does not match exactly with the column name in the table.

The column names are case-sensitive.

Copy the exact column names from the Inline Jiffy table and provide in the parameter Column_name of the function, comma-separated and rerun the task.

I am using the Get Table Value function to extract the data from the Document table, but the function fails with an error “Unable to decode table object”.

This error occurs when the table input parameter given for the Get Table Value function is not a Data Table. Get Table Value function is used to retrieve data from transient Data Tables. To retrieve data from Document Table, use Jiffy Select node.

While executing Web UI node, I get an error in step data using predefined function Get Table Value, "Given row number one is more than available data rows zero.". Image description

This error occurs when for the row number given in the predefined function Get Table Value, no data is present in the Data Table from which value is being extracted. Ensure that the result set that populates the Data Table has data for the given row and column number.
For example, if you are populating the Data Table from a search result of a website, search manually with the same inputs and ensure data is fetched.
Else, change the inputs of the automation for which data is available in the result set and provide a row and column number that has data.

Getting an error “Error while saving functions. HTML tags are not allowed in functions” when I try to save a user-defined function. Image description

This error occurs when restricted HTML tags are used in user-defined functions. The restriction on the tags listed below is imposed due to security reasons.

Restricted HTML Tags: script, img, a, svg, video, iframe, form, object, style, meta, isindex, applet

However, the restricted HTML tags can be first replaced with any user defined name in the code and can be replaced back with the actual tags using replace function.

To replace a restricted tag "a" the code would be:
val = <jiffy_a>Hello</jiffy_a>;
(write HTML code)
return val.replace('jiffy_a','a');
This will return <a>hi</a>

Task failed due to “java.lang.RuntimeException…….Exec Engine - MAX_MESSAGE_SIZE_LIMIT Exceeded - 30 mb" error. Image description

  1. Check if any unwanted variables or tables are being passed. Switch them off if they are present.
  2. If the problem persists, check if the task can be redesigned with the node split into multiple nodes so that number of variables passed to each node can be reduced.
