For example, the Add Values component requires two pieces of data to do its job: First Value and Second Value. These pieces of data are the input data for the component. The Add Values component also has a property that is called Output Variable Name, which refers to output data for the component.
You can set input data for a component in a number of ways. For example, when you set the First Value property for an Add Values component you have three options: Process Variables, Dynamic Model, and Constant Value. Other components have other options for setting input data. For some components, such as the For Each Element In Collection component, you must set a data type before you can set input data.
The options for setting component input data are as follows:
Lets you select a variable from the process. Process variables include any data that is available on the data stream, such as project properties, global data, and output variables from other components.
A process variable is not available unless it is introduced to the process before a component in which you intend to use it. If a variable is introduced to the process after a component, you cannot use that variable in that component.
Lets you set a constant value. Constant values are not static values.
Lets you map an array into an array.
Lets you map a single value into a single value.
Lets you configure a dynamic model to determine the value. When you use this method, always map the value in the End component of the dynamic model.
Lets you configure text in the text editor to determine the value.
