Select a FROM Type and then complete the Copy operation by making other appropriate selections. Add, edit, copy, delete, and reorganize Copy operations and scripts for the selected Assign activity. For a complex type or element, you can generate an XML data file. If the Generate button is greyed out, the variable selected is not of a compatible type. For any variable, use this editor to type in appropriate literal values. Select any matching type or element from the drop-down list to create a XML data file for the root element.
Copy Operation Literal Contents Examples
Type in a literal value for copying to a simple variable, variable property, expression, or partner link, as shown in Example 1. Generate XML data for a complex variable, as shown in Example 2.
The expression above assigns a string to variable part that is a string. If the variable part were an integer, Process Developer would not report an error, rather it would generate a zero value. Process Developer converts any illegal values to zero for numeric type conversions.
Example 2: Literal contents generation used to initialize a complex variable
In the TO panel, select a complex variable (and optionally one of its parts) that you want to generate XML data for.
If you do not select a TO target first, an unfiltered list of top-level schema elements or complex types that the process is importing are available. If no elements or types are available, the
button is unavailable.
