Workflow Engine function getThreadEntry has no arguments.


The action is intended to be used in a SigAction Workflow Engine. You can use it after a sigActionFilter action to limit to specific sigAction codes, for example “Added Entry To Thread”. Used on its own it will retrieve the threadEntry for any sigAction that contains an entry_id.
