Call Adapter activity

Adapters are used to interact with external systems. Each actor adapter is configured in Grid Manager. When you are creating a process with the  Development Studio application, you add adapters to the process using a Call Adapter activity. The Call Adapter activity executes an adapter request and, when available, assigns the adapter's response to a context item for use in subsequent activities. The format of the request and response is specific to the adapter being called. 

The Property Panel for a Call Adapter activity consists of three tabs: Properties, Logging, and Metadata. The Logging and Metadata tabs follow the standard layout and principles. There are two options for designating the Adapter you want to use: Static Value (you specify the name of the adapter on the grid) and Context Key (the name of the adapter is provided by a context item)

System adapter is also available in the Call Adapter activity. 

To use a static value as an adapter data source

  1. On the  Development Studio process canvas, double-click the Call Adapter activity.

  2. In the Properties panel of the Call Adapter activity, click the Static Value option for the Adapter Data Source.

  3. Complete the fields.

  4. When all fields have been completed, click OK to save the information.

To use a context key as an adapter data source

  1. On the  Development Studio process canvas, double-click the Call Adapter activity.

  2. In the Properties panel of the Call Adapter activity, click the Context Key option for the adapter data source.

  3. Complete the fields.

  4. When all fields have been completed, click OK to save the information.
