Adding a results-based path to a flow
You can use a connector to add a results-based path to a flow. By using run-time values to determine which path a flow follows, you can create cases that support more than one outcome.
- Open a process by searching for it or by using the Application Explorer. For more information, see Finding rules by class.
- Define a new path by connecting a sequence of shapes to an existing shape the flow. For more information about the different shapes that you can use, see Flow shapes.
- Configure the result, or return value, that causes the flow to follow the new path.
- Double-click the connector that goes from the existing shape in the flow to the first shape in the new path.
- In the Condition type list, select Result .
- In the Result field, enter text or a predefined value, based on the shapes that you are connecting. For example, a Decision shape returns True or False values when it is configured with a Boolean Expression, or property values when it is configured with a Decision Tree.
- In the Likelihood field, enter a number between 1 and 100 to control the order in which your application evaluates the connector at run time.
- Click Submit.
- Review the configuration of all other paths, or connectors, from the shape to ensure that it supports the following best practices:
- There is only one Else connector, so that the flow can continue when no conditions return a true value.
- There are no Always connectors, which are applicable only when there is a single path from one shape to another.
- Each connector provides a unique Likelihood value.
