releaseTask

Releases a Human task instance from the current owner. You can release a task instance if you are the owner or the business administrator on the task instance.
When you release a task instance, the task instance has no owner. If you release a task instance that you own, the task instance remains available to you in the Analyst tool. If the Human task identifies multiple users as potential owners of the task instance that you release, the task instance is available to all of the potential owners.
The infacmd wfs releaseTask command uses the following syntax:
releaseTask

<-DomainName|-dn> domain_name

<-ServiceName|-sn> service_name

<-UserName|-un> user_name

<-Password|-pd> password

<-TaskId|-tid> task_id

[<-SecurityDomain|-sdn> security_domain]

[<-ResilienceTimeout|-re> timeout_period_in_seconds]
The following table describes infacmd wfs releaseTask options and arguments:
Option
Argument
Description
-DomainName
-dn
domain_name
Required. Name of the Informatica domain. You can set the domain name with the -dn option or the environment variable INFA_DEFAULT_DOMAIN. If you set a domain name with both methods, the -dn option takes precedence.
-ServiceName
-sn
service_name
Required. Name of the Data Integration Service that runs the workflow instance.
-UserName
-un
user_name
Required if the domain uses Native or LDAP authentication. User name to connect to the domain. You can set the user name with the -un option or the environment variable INFA_DEFAULT_DOMAIN_USER. If you set a user name with both methods, the -un option takes precedence.
Optional if the domain uses Kerberos authentication. To run the command with single sign-on, do not set the user name. If you set the user name, the command runs without single sign-on.
-Password
-pd
password
Required if you specify the user name. Password for the user name. The password is case sensitive. You can set a password with the -pd option or the environment variable INFA_DEFAULT_DOMAIN_PASSWORD. If you set a password with both methods, the password set with the -pd option takes precedence.
-TaskID
-tid
task_id
Required. Identifier of the Human task instance in the workflow database.
-SecurityDomain
-sdn
security_domain
Required if the domain uses LDAP authentication. Optional if the domain uses native authentication or Kerberos authentication. Name of the security domain to which the domain user belongs. You can set a security domain with the -sdn option or the environment variable INFA_DEFAULT_SECURITY_DOMAIN. If you set a security domain name with both methods, the -sdn option takes precedence. The security domain name is case sensitive.
If the domain uses native or LDAP authentication, the default is Native. If the domain uses Kerberos authentication, the default is the LDAP security domain created during installation. The name of the security domain is the same as the user realm specified during installation.
-ResilienceTimeout
-re
timeout_period_in_seconds
Optional. Amount of time in seconds that infacmd attempts to establish or re-establish a connection to the domain. You can set the resilience timeout period with the -re option or the environment variable INFA_CLIENT_RESILIENCE_TIMEOUT. If you set the resilience timeout period with both methods, the -re option takes precedence.
