Initiate Workflow With Custom Action

I have looked around on Google, and I have found tutorials on how to initiate a workflow from a custom action in the ribbon, but I have run into a problem. I am not sure why (I assume I have a setting wrong that isn’t mentioned in the tutorials) but the drop-down under ‘Initiate Workflow’ in the Custom Action creation dialog contains no workflows at all. I have tried creating test workflows of both site and reusable types. I have several existing workflows that are associated with this list, and I have tried creating test list-associated workflows as well. Does anyone know why I wouldn’t be able to see my workflows here?

EDIT: I have no idea what the problem was, but I used the URL location of the initiation form, and now the ‘Initiate Workflow’ drop-down shows my workflows. Guess it fixed itself…

Can you retrain the Magic Initiate spell using the Spellcasting feature?

This question got me thinking about the mechanics of the Magic Initiate feat when you have class levels in the class into which you were inducted.

Among the classes you can pick with this feat are the Bard, Sorcerer, and Warlock, which know a limited number of spells and all have the same statement under Spells Known.

Additionally, when you gain a level in this class, you can choose one of the [class] spells you know and replace it with another spell from the [class] spell list , which must also be of a level for which you have spell slots.

The term “learning” is used both to describe new spells acquired on level-up and the spell acquired through the feat. This would seem to indicate your Magic Initiate spell counts among the spells you know, and is thus eligible for retraining if you learned it as a spell of your class.

An odd change in wording occurs during the Magic Initiate feat description (emphasis mine):

In addition, choose one 1st-level spell from the same list. You learn that spell and can cast it at its lowest level.

This generalization in describing the learned spell’s level seems to imply that there exists a scenario where it would not be appropriate to restrict the spell to being cast as a 1st-level spell. Could one of the charisma casters retrain Magic Initiate into a higher level spell, which they could then cast once per long rest without using a slot?

This would turn an otherwise unexciting feat into, effectively, a Mystic Arcanum for Bards and Sorcerers. This seems too powerful to be intentional, but the feat description appears to have gone out of its way to permit it.

Can a character replace their Magic Initiate spells using the Spellcasting feature?

The feat Magic Initiate lets you learn a 1st level spell:

You learn that spell and can cast it at its lowest level. Once you cast it, you must finish a long rest before you can cast it again using this feat.

Depending on the class you choose, this spell will count as a [class] spell for the purpose of other features.

The Spellcasting class feature is one such feature that mentions [class] spells for classes like Rangers, Bards, and Sorcerers (among others):

Additionally, when you gain a level in this class, you can choose one of the [class] spells you know and replace it with another spell from the [class] spell list, which also must be of a level for which you have spell slots.

Could you replace the spell from Magic Initiate with another spell from that class’s class spell list upon gaining a level in that class?
If you replaced the spell with a higher level one “for which you have spell slots”, could you then still cast it once using the feat (i.e. without using a spell slot) between long rests?


I’d prefer answers from a RAW perspective, as I’m aware of Jeremy Crawford’s tweet indicating a sort of RAI perspective:

Magic Initiate doesn’t provide a way to replace its spells

Cannot initiate the connection to archive.ubuntu.com:80

this issues had been in my life for 2 weeks and i was unable to figure it out. My domain name was hosted by 1&1 and my website is hosted by my own ubuntu 18.04. I have no issue to ping anywhere and my website has no issue to visit. However I cant update or upgrade my Ubuntu server with the following error message: my nameserver shows this: nameserver 127.0.0.53 options edns0

Thank you in advance for help.

Does the Magic Initiate feat give a Thief rogue a spell save DC?

The Thief archetype Rogue gets the Use Magic Device feature at 13th level:

By 13th level, you have learned enough about the workings of magic that you can improvise the use of items even when they are not intended for you. You ignore all class, race, and level requirements on the use of magic items.

Some of these items require the use of the user’s own spellcasting ability and proficiency bonus. The rogue would only have the latter, but would the Magic Initiate feat fix that?

Magic Initiate: spell on my class list but from a different class [duplicate]

This question already has an answer here:

  • Can you cast a magic initiate spell using spell slots? 4 answers

I have read this question and answer.

Can you cast a magic initiate spell using spell slots?

If a Druid takes the Magic Initiate feat, and choosing Cleric takes a spell on both lists (such as Healing Word), can they cast that shared spell taken from the Cleric list with class spell slots?

The following leads me to think this is subtly different: the previous question dealt with a wizard taking a spell that was not a wizard spell. It was Not On His List. The Druid is taking a Druid spell off the Cleric list; it is still a Druid spell and available for the Druid to prepare.

Why would an app ask another app to initiate closing a TCP connection?

I’m going to share an example where I noticed this and would like to know if there is a known pattern of why one would do this.

I have two instances of rsyslog running on different machines. One acts as a receiving server, the other as the sending client.

While there is a connection the following is seen on the server:

receiving-server$    netstat -plant4 | grep 192.168.101 tcp        0      0 192.168.101.180:80      192.168.101.14:50070    ESTABLISHED 4925/rsyslogd 

After that a stopping of the client service is triggered:

sending-client$   systemctl stop rsyslog 
receiving-server$    netstat -plant4 | grep 192.168.101 tcp        0      0 192.168.101.180:80      192.168.101.14:50070    TIME_WAIT   -               

The TIME_WAIT is a state that happens on the side which initiated the connection termination ref.

TIME-WAIT - represents waiting for enough time to pass to be sure the remote TCP received the acknowledgment of its connection termination request. 

This means that the client is telling the server initiate closing the connections because that same client is stopping. Why wouldn’t the client just close the connections?

Can anyone initiate a Blockchain transaction into the mining pool?

Let’s say user A has public key P and corresponding private key P’. Can someone else initiate a transaction for public key P with some wrong private key, let’s say P”? Once this goes to the memory pool, miners will see that it is not signed with correct private key P’ and will reject the transaction. Does it happen this way? Or is it that I can’t initiate a transaction at all with wrong key?
