Viewing the System Variables of an Activity for a Workflow


You can view the system variables used for an activity. System variables can be called by other activities in the workflow. For example, you can use the status variable to track the activity status and trigger a specific condition in another activity.


  1. Open the properties of the activity that you want to view the system variables for.

  2. On the System tab, view the common system variables:

    • startTime: The date and time the activity starts execution.

    • endTime: The date and time the activity completes execution.

    • status: The status of the activity after runtime. For example, the activity completes with a FAILED status.

    • timedOut: The boolean value (True/False) that indicates whether the activity was timed out.
