Types of decision logic

Version:

Only available versions of this content are shown in the dropdown

You can use different types of logic when you add the Decision shape to a flow. By understanding what makes each type unique, you can create flows that make decisions more effectively.

You can use the following types of decision logic in a flow:

  • Boolean expression - Returns a true or false value, based on an evaluation of conditions and properties that you define.

  • Decision table - Returns a single value for the row in the table that meets the conditions, expressions, and value ranges that you define.

  • Decision tree - Returns a single value for the branch in the tree that meets the if-then logic that you define.

  • Fork - Evaluates when conditions, expressions, and likelihoods that you define to determine which connector advances the flow to the next shape in the sequence.

  • Map value - Converts one or two input values into a single-value result.

  • Adding decisions to processes

    Make your business processes flexible and responsive by providing conditional paths that a case can follow to reach a resolution. By adding a decision point to your case, you support more than one outcome for your business process, and adjust the case to changing business needs and circumstances.

  • Changing the decision logic in a flow

    You can change the way that you implement a decision in a process. By using a rule instead of a series of when conditions to define your decision logic, you can create cases that support complex decisions and are easier to maintain.
