Description

This section describes how to use a ‘Change list’ activity to perform operations on a list in a microflow.

Instructions

Open the microflow, or if necessary create a new one. If you do not know how to add documents to your project, please refer to this article.

A list should be created in this microflow; ‘Create list’ and ‘Retrieve’ are activities that can do this.

Add a ‘Change list’ activity to the microflow. If you do not know how to add activities to a microflow please refer to this article.

Double-click on the ‘Change list’ activity to start configuring it.

Under ‘List’, select the list you want to perform operations on.

Choose the type of operation you want to perform in the ‘Type’ section.

‘Add’ will add objects to the list, ‘Remove’ will remove objects, ‘Clear’ will completely empty the list and ‘Replace’ will empty the list and then add new objects to it.

In the ‘Value’ section, enter the microflow expression which will result in an object or list of objects of the same entity as the list.

You can enter the expression manually, or use the ‘Generate’ button to have the modeler construct a basic expression.
