The Workflow Utilities business service contains generic utilities that are used most typically in a test environment. To view an example that uses the Workflow Utilities Business Service, see Example Workflow Process That Traverses a Record Set to Close Obsolete Service Requests.
The Echo method of the Workflow Utilities business service returns a mirror image of the input arguments. Echo copies its inputs to its outputs. For example, Echo can be used in building or formatting a mail body before calling the SendMessage method of the Outbound Communications Manager.
Table 85 describes Echo method arguments.
When using the Echo Method of the Workflow Utilities business service you specify output parameters that are populated with values from the active record of the business component currently being manipulated by the workflow process.
For example, assume you must acquire the value in the Price List Id field from the active record in the Account business component. You can use the Echo method on the Workflow Utilities business service with no input argument specified and one output argument.
Table 86 describes an example output parameter specified on the Workflow Utilities business service.
In this example, as a result of running the workflow process, the Echo Variable process property is populated with the value in the Price List Id field of the active Account business component record.
Table 87 describes methods on the Workflow Utilities business service.
