Updating Staffing Profile status From the Request Workflow - Can this be done using Ksc_run_sql?Open in a New Window

What I'm attempting to do is update the Staffing Profile status based on the an action taken in the request workflow.


I was trying to build an execution step that would do this but it's failing every time.


I'm running ksc_run_sql... 


ksc_run_sql QUERY_STRING="UPDATE rsc_staffing_profiles set status_code = 1 where container_entity_id = [REQ.REQUEST_ID];" ENV_NAME="[SOURCE_ENV.ENVIRONMENT_NAME]"


Perhaps I can't run an Update statement here?



Source Command:update_status

Running query: UPDATE rsc_staffing_profiles set status_code = 1 where container_entity_id = 33370;
Unexpected error!
ERROR: java.sql.SQLSyntaxErrorException: ORA-00933: SQL command not properly ended


Any ideas?


Thanks in advance.
