Run Orchestration


Run an orchestration job to completion. After the orchestration job completes, other orchestration components can be linked to this one depending upon success or failure.

Use this component to better organize complicated orchestration job flows by breaking them into simpler pieces that can be conflated in another orchestration job.


Name = string

A human-readable name for the component.

Orchestration Job = drop-down

Choose an existing orchestration job.

Take care to not create circular references, or a job may never complete. As such, the current job can't be selected here.

Set Scalar Variables = columns editor

  • Variable: Select a scalar variable to be used by the called orchestration job. Add a scalar variable by clicking + and then selecting from the dropdown list.
  • Value: Assign a value to the scalar variable. The assigned value must be of the correct type as given when the variable was declared.

If a shared variable named 'Message' is passed using this method, it can be later exported from this component (keeping any changes to the value that occurred within the Run Orchestration job) using the 'Message' export variable.

Set Grid Variables = columns editor

Grid variables for the orchestration job being called are listed and, by default, are used by the called job in their default state. Selecting a grid variable and choosing an option other than Use Defaults in the Set Values dropdown menu allows users to overwrite grid variables data in that job.

  • Values: Define individual values.
  • Grid: Map columns using grid variables from the called orchestration job. For more information, read Grid variables.
