Run Operation Activity


The Run Operation activity executes an operation in a Geocortex viewer application like Geocortex Web or Geocortex Mobile.

Operations are similar to activities. They perform a unit of work in an application. Depending on the operation specified, an input parameter may be required and the operations may produce an output result value.


A workflow could use the Run Operation activity to invoke the sketching.capture-geometry operation in a viewer. This operation allows the end user to draw a geometry on a map. Set the Operation Name input to sketching.capture-geometry. Set the Operation Parameter input to an expression that provides an object that specifies the desired drawing type. For example, ={ "geometryType": "point" }, ={ "geometryType": "polyline" } or ={ "geometryType": "polygon" }. When the user completes drawing a geometry the operation will complete. The operation's resulting geometry value will be assigned to the result output of the activity and the activity will complete.
