Overview and Key Concepts

Tokens wait at the Join activity until one token arrives from each incoming connector. The token from the first connector is then released out the outgoing connector and the other tokens destroyed.

Specifying a Partition ID makes tokens wait only for other tokens in the same partition. This is useful for coordinating with other tokens of the same type. See Coordination for information on coordinating tokens.


The Join activity only allows one connector out.

The number of incoming connectors will affect the behavior of this activity. See Connectors and Coordination Activities for more about the unique behavior of connectors in Coordination activities.

Each of these properties will be explained in the following sections.

Partition ID

Defines which partition tokens will use.

Use Max Wait Timer

The max wait timer will be evaluated if the token has not pulled its required amount after the specified time. See Max Wait Timer for more information.

Use Max Idle Timer

The max idle timer will be evaluated each time a value is pulled from the list by the token. See Max Idle Timer for more information.
