Custom Code

Overview and Key Concepts

You can use the Custom Code activity to create custom behavior in the Process Flow module. You can select pre-defined picklist options or write your own code in FlexScript. When a token enters the Custom Code activity, it will evaluate the user-defined code and then immediately be released to the next activity without any model time passing.

Connectors

The Custom Code activity only allows one connector out. See Adding and Connecting Activities for more information.

Statistics

Custom Code

Use the Custom Code box to choose the custom code that should be executed when a token enters this activity. You can use pre-defined code templates (picklists) or write your own custom code if you are comfortable with Flexscript.

To use a picklist, click the Add button next to the Custom Code box to open a menu listing different picklists that are currently available for this object. Try clicking on this menu and exploring some of the different options to see what's available.

Alternatively, if you are comfortable with Flexscript and want to enter in your own custom code, click the Code Editor button next to the Custom Code box to open the code editor. In the code editor, you would enter in the code you want the activity to execute every time a new token enters the activity.
