Database Listener Activity Overview

Context

When you use the Database Listener Activity in a dynamic workflow, the activity causes the workflow to wait for a specified value to update in the field of a database table. When this field is updated, the new data updates in the Database Listener Activity's database table (UACT table), and the workflow proceeds to the next stage.

Wizard Tips

  • Connection String: configure the connection string for the source database.
  • Table/Query: relevant table name or query for the relevant table.
  • Key Field: Enter the name of the field in the selected table that triggers the database listener. This field must be unique.
  • Key Value: value of the key field that triggers the database listener. You can define this parameter with an expression.
  • Blocking: deselect this option for the flow to continue without the key field being updated to the key value.
