Config data

On This Page

Sometimes you may want to store common configuration within a workflow for use across multiple steps, such as a common error message or an email address you want to send emails to at different points in the workflow. Workflow configuration is a way of storing these values that can then be used by any step using the $.config JSON Path property.

To set Config Data, go to the workflow settings page by clicking on the settings wheel in the top left of the Workflow editor:

workflow-settings-wheel

From here you can click on 'Config Data' and set the Name and Value for any common config

config-data-screen

Once set, Config Data can then be used at any point in your Workflow:

Note that the first example uses a simple $.config.alert-email-adress which is input as JSON path type.

While the second example puts the config in curly brackets: {$.config.alert-message} so that it can be used as part of a normal String message. This is called 'Interpolated Mode'.

More information on Interpolated Mode and moving data between workflow steps can be found in the Moving Data between Connectors section.
