Custom shape does not completely capture values from screen



Custom shape does not completely capture the values from the screen.

Error Messages

Not Applicable.

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Create an activity
  2. Add one input parameter. For example, sampleValue
  3. Use the Property-Set method and assign the input parameter to a new parameter. For example, param.sampleValue which is not defined in the Parameter tab
  4. Run the standup alone activity and check the value of param.sampleValue on the last step of the activity in the tracer

Root Cause

The custom shape activity has a configuration issue. The value which was not saved in the database was not mapped correctly. The input and output variable has the same name which resulted in ambiguity for the system.


Perform the following local-change:

Change the configuration in the activity so that the input and output variables have different name to map the value correctly.
