Receive Notification

This is a process starter activity. The Receive Notification activity starts a process when another process executes a Notify activity with a matching key and a shared configuration resource.

The same shared configuration (Notify Configuration) resource must be specified by the corresponding Receive Notification and Notify activities to pass the data from the process containing the Notify activity to the process started with Receive Notification. The schema in the shared configuration resource however can be empty, if you do not want to pass data between processes.
