Hi @raymondhui,
Modern folders are working based on users, not robots so if you want to run specific job on specific folder you just need to be sure that particular user has been defined as robot (role) in that folder and process is present there as well. Passing parameters are possible as well. You just need to define input/ourput argument in your process and then in orchestrator use this option for example:

Hi Pablito,

Thanks for your ans and yes I can set these things via orchestrator UI.

However, could we do this and start a job via http request activities?

Currently I want to pass a parameter to a workflow, and this workflow is used to base on different parameter, it can start different job in different folder, and I dont need to login to orchestrator, choose specific folder and start the job.

Many thanks.

I know what you mean. We have some plans to implement such functionality. But currently there are only API and Arguments available for such use case.

May I know how to do it via api?

Here you have complete documentation about Orchestrator’s API:
