Global Variables

Global Variables

ERROR_MESSAGE: the error message generated by the component when an error occurs. This is an After variable and it returns a string. This variable functions only if the Die on error check box is cleared, if the component has this check box.

A Flow variable functions during the execution of a component while an After variable functions after the execution of the component.

To fill up a field or expression with a variable, press Ctrl+Space to access the variable list and choose the variable to use from it.

For more information about variables, see Using contexts and variables.


Usage rule

This component follows the action the assertive condition is directly related to. It can be the intermediate or end component of the main Job, or the start, intermediate or end component of the secondary Job.


The evaluation of tAssert is captured only by tAssertCatcher.
