To customize the behaviour of the processes, scripting action can be used.

When a script is interpreted, an object is passed to this script to provide access to the Runtime Engine features. This Context object is accessed using the __ctx__ alias. 

This object provides a list of methods for manipulating variables and values as well as a return value used for code substitution and condition evaluation.

Scripting Publish ERROR 

  • Action expression :
    errorsOnly = true;
    err = __ctx__.getLstVariablesByName("CORE_RET_MESS", "../subprocess", errorsOnly);
    // Build Error String
    errorPath = "";
    errorString = "";
    if (err.size() > 0) {
        errorPath = err.get(0).name;
        errorString = err.get(0).value;
    // Publish to variables on the root process
    __ctx__.publishVariable("~/ErrorPath", errorPath);
    __ctx__.publishVariable("~/ErrorString", errorString);
    __ctx__.publishVariable("~/ErrorRetCode", "${../subprocess/CORE_RET_CODE}$");
