Activity Pane

During debug mode, some of the activity properties pane tabs have a Definition tab and a Debug tab:

  • Definition tab

    Displays the variables defined in the activity, for example, xpath:{/workflow/inputs/userEmail}. Change the information in the Definition tab for an activity if the activity has a breakpoint or if the debugger has not run the activity. Click Publish after changing activity definitions.

  • Debug tab

    Displays the value used during the debugging session, for example, the input Definition tab displays xpath:{/workflow/inputs/userEmail}, so the Debug tab displays jzhang@mycompany.com.

Immediate (pane)

  • Log tab

    Displays the runtime information created during the execution of the workflow.

  • Script tab

    Use to send immediate scripts into the running process. Use immediate scripts to:

    • Troubleshoot advanced issues in activity and workflow development
    • Update workflow variables
    • Run database queries using Java
