Defining Process Component Output Properties

The logic defined by the process component may result in the production of data. This data may be returned to an external log or stored back within the Context Object for use during the execution of a process flow. Data returned upon successful completion of the component's functionality is defined as output properties.

Follow these steps to add an output property to a component:

  1. Open a new record from the Output Properties tab of the Process Components form.
  2. Enter the Name of the output property.
  3. Enter a Description of the output property.
  4. Select the property's data type from the Type list.
    • The Type options are String, Integer, Long, Decimal, Date/Time, Boolean, and Object.
    • Typically, an output property corresponds to a Field value from an entity so the Type should match the Field's SQL Data Type as defined in the entity.

      Output Properties Record

  5. If you want to customize the way an output property is viewed, you can define a property viewer on the Property Page tab. See Defining Process Flow Input Properties for an example of an input property using a customize viewer.
  6. Click OK to save and close the record.
  7. Repeat steps 1 through 5 to define additional output properties.
    • Alternatively, you can select OK and New in Step 6 to close the current record and open a new Output Properties record in one step.
