MDM Platform

The mdm_context variable is created automatically both when you design a workflow using the workflow wizard and when you design a workflow from scratch, but you will need to create it yourself for an Entity Action Process.

About this task

To add the mdm_context variable manually, do the following:


  1. In the BPM perspective, click in the workflow pool and then, in the Data view, click the Pool variables tab.
  2. In the Process variables area, click the Add button.
  3. In the window that opens, define the parameters of the variable as follows:
    • Name: mdm_context

    • Data type: Java Object

    • Class: Click the Browse button, start typing MDMContext in the selection field, click this class to select it once it appears in the list of classes proposed, and then click OK.

  4. Click Finish to validate your changes.
