Working with the Decision Task

Working with the Decision Task

You can enter a condition that determines the execution of the workflow, similar to a link condition with the Decision task. The Decision task has a predefined variable called
$Decision_task_name
.condition that represents the result of the decision condition. The Integration Service evaluates the condition in the Decision task and sets the predefined condition variable to True (1) or False (0).
You can specify one decision condition per Decision task. After the Integration Service evaluates the Decision task, use the predefined condition variable in other expressions in the workflow to help you develop the workflow.
Depending on the workflow, you might use link conditions instead of a Decision task. However, the Decision task simplifies the workflow. If you do not specify a condition in the Decision task, the Integration Service evaluates the Decision task to True.
