Call-Async-Activity method

Updated on August 10, 2022

Use the Call-Async-Activity method to load data pages asynchronously (into background threads) to allow other processing to continue.

Note: To run an activity asynchronously, set Usage on the activity's Security tab to "Asynchronous".

Only the following step methods are available:


ActivityName of the activity to execute asynchronously. Select an activity whose Usage on the Security tab is set to "Asynchronous".
pool IDThis is a token used to group multiple data pages that are loaded in the background and used by the Connect-Wait method to wait for the data pages with the same pool ID to finish loading.


The system uses rule resolution to locate the correct instances of the data pages.
Note: This method supports asynchronous loading of data pages.

Checking the method status

This method updates the pxMethodStatus property only if it fails. See How to test method results using a transition.
