Wizard Tips

  • When you define the command input parameter bindings, you can enter the values manually, select them from workflow data, or define them as part of an expression.
  • In Security properties, the credential type should be None. Credentials are not relevant for this activity.

V8.3.4 and later

Context

Use the Built-in Command Activity to execute HotOperations or Process Operations actions in the workflow. 

IMPORTANT:
When you execute Assign, Fetch, or Return built-in commands during the creation of the workflow (connected to the start activity without any blocking activity in between), you need to place the Execute Plan built-in command before any other command. This is required because the plan does not execute until the execution stage finishes.  
The assign, fetch, and return task commands only work when they run in the context of a solution workflow or its child workflow.

HotOperations actions

You don't need to add a value to the TeamLeaderId parameter when you set up the Assign and Fetch Dynamic Task or Assign Dynamic Task commands.  These commands run even if the  TeamLeaderId parameter is null. This configuration is useful for tasks that do not require a Team Leader. 

Process Operations actions

Note:
Replace Leaver is available only in the Leavers Replacement workflow  and does not support InMemory mode.

Tips

  • When you define the command input parameter bindings, you can enter the values manually, select them from workflow data, or define them as part of an expression.
  • Credential type should be None under Security parameters. Credentials are not relevant for built-in command activities.
