I am using postgreSQL as my database for the data in M.App Enterprise,
I have a workflow that should run a postgis query (filling a 'state_name' column in a points table using the 'ST_Within'), so I created an .exe to run that query and I run it from the workflow,
but I am wondering if there is an internal way in M.App Enterprise to run this workflow without creating an exe?
Solved! Go to Solution.

how do you run that exe from the workflow?
In general this task should be easily achievable using a workflow trigger.

the answer about how I run an exe: In the actionset I made an action group then choosed: 'open file' then write down the exe path in the 'Path' field.
I have a question about the 'workflow trigger', in this case I want to run the query only once.
I have another case which I draw a line feature and I want fill in its length in a field in its table.
Do you have a practical example to make a trigger, as I tried to make it but errors continues appearing.

in this case you need to have connectivity to the database from the client side or your exe will have to use a component on the server to run the query.
If you define a trigger that will be run on the M.App Enterprise server instead. Here is a working sample (in this case the syntax is from SQLServer, but it would work also in PostGIS with a few adjustments):

Many thanks Stefano it works as follows:
