Setting: Strings to which Business Data has been Inserted to be Set in Midstream

To configure "a state in which the data is input in advance " for Task Processing Screen(Input Screen), the method of Auto-Setting an [Initial Value] at the uppermost stream is useful. However, when it is required referring to some Business Data, the value must be set in the middle of the flow (Auto-Set Step).

You can refer to the value of Business Data (including [Issue Name]) at the time of passing automated steps
b. Need to recognize risk of overwriting
The Data Item configured auto-set expression will overwrite the input value at the upper stream
c. Need to recognize risk of collision processing
There is possibility of conflicts in rewriting Data if the flow is split simultaneously
  • As Initial Value Setting, you cannot set Data with referring to other Business Data Items
