I am new to Pega and struggling to pull data from my clipboard to be displayed in an approval form. I want my application to accept input from a user, which i have located on the clipboard, and then display it for another operator so it can be approved. I do not want to save this data to a database before approval so I want to be able to just pull the data from the clipboard for temporary display. After this is approved, I want it to be saved to database. How can I go about doing this in a section?

Since the work object will be routed to another operator, the data would need to be saved to the database. The system allows for temporary work objects to be created and they can be persisted later in the flow but a temporary item would need to be processed by the same user. What is the reason for not wanting the data to be saved to the database?
Thank you, this is the logic I was able to come up with upon further inspection, but I appreciate the confirmation and now I understand better. I did not want the data to be saved to the database yet as I wanted another operator to approve it first. However, I suppose I will work around that and save the data to the database and then delete it upon rejection instead.

You can pull property data entered in the input fields in an section by using the property name of cell properties in further sections, You can specify it as read only if you don't want the other user to edit it. Other wise you can customize it in presentation Tab of cell properties.
