Run Workflow Activity

Description

The Run Workflow activity runs another workflow. This activity allows you divide a workflow into smaller workflows and then reuse the smaller workflows in different contexts.

The Run Workflow activity can also run a server workflow that runs on your own server, rather than the user's device.

Usage

You could divide a workflow into smaller workflows and use a master workflow to control the logic of running the smaller, target workflows. When it runs a target workflow, the master workflow supplies the input arguments using the Arguments input. The target workflow uses the Get Workflow Inputs activity to access the inputs. If the target workflow produces outputs, it assigns them using the Set Workflow Output activity, making them available to the master workflow. When the target workflow completes, the master workflow resumes running at the next activity.

Offline Support

This activity does not work when the device is offline.

Inputs
