Execute an Action in an Action Flow
You can execute any of the actions available in Processes Layer, Logic Layer, and Data Layer of the eSpace Tree.
How to execute an action:
If you drop the action on top of an existing connector, this action is inserted at that point. If you drop it on an empty area of the Content Canvas, you have to link it afterwards; otherwise this action is not executed.
An action can have:
Input parameters: Instantiated when the action is executed, through the Arguments property of the Execute Action. How?
Directly type the <instance of action>.<name of parameter>; for example:
Through the special editors in the folder Locals inside the Expression editor.
If the parameter type is composite, you can browse its definition to reach the attribute you want; the available composite types are Record and Record List.
