Actions

Actions perform the business logic after all the decision-making is done. An action works in a similar way to data elements except at the end. When it runs, it performs a task instead of returning a value.

Note: Actions are run in the order they appear in the User Console.

The following fields define an action:

Action Name

Defines the purpose of the action.

Category

Provides a grouping of actions. This field sorts the actions and makes selection easier.

Type and Function

Defines the type and function of the action taken.

Note: For more information about Type and Function, see Data.

Function Description

Provides a prepopulated description of the function. Each function selected provides a different description to help in understanding its use and what the expected values are.

Parameters

Defines the parameters passed to the action.
