Saving data in a data page as part of a case life cycle


Only available versions of this content are shown in the dropdown

Manage data in your application more efficiently by saving case data to a data page. As a result, you can save the data in a separate object, and then manage the data independently of the case. Consequently, you speed up your application development and promote reuse of resources.

For example, in a financial application, if you save customer banking history as a data page, you can reuse the data in other rules or pages in your application that require the use of a data page.
Configure a savable data page. For more information, see Creating a save plan for a data page in.

When you save information to a data page, you can either call the data page directly or use an autopopulated property. Autopopulated properties prevent your application from monitoring changes in key parameters as they automatically retrieve the object as soon as any property value of the object is needed and a key to the object is available. Completing these actions improves the performance of your application.

  1. Right-click the Save Data Page smart shape and click View Properties.

  2. In the Automation details section, in the Data Page Name field, select or enter the name of the savable data page that you configure in Step 1.

    The selected or entered name must be an autopopulated property that references a savable data type.
  3. Optional:

    To specify an autopopulated property, complete the following steps:

    1. Select the Use associated property check box.

    2. Click Select.

    3. Optional:

      To provide a unique name for the step, in the Save data page field, enter a value.

      Enter Save banking history.
  4. Configure how your application saves information to the data page:

    Choices Actions
    Save data directly to the data page
    1. In the Step properties pane, in the Data Page Name field, enter the name of the savable data page.

    2. Optional:

      If the data page has parameters, in the Parameters section, specify values for the parameters.

    Use an autopopulated property
    1. In the Step properties pane, select the Use associated property check box.

    2. In the Autopopulate Property Name field, enter the name of the property that you want to use.

  5. Optional:

    To provide more information for auditing purposes, in the Audit note field, press the Down arrow key, and then select an audit note to associate with the step.

  6. Drag the Save Data Page smart shape to the part of the flow in which you want the data in the data page to be saved.

  7. Click Save.
