The Start activity is the first activity, and acts as the starter activity, in a direct subprocess definition. A direct subprocess can be called from a parent process, and the Start activity is used to define the input expected by the process.


The General tab has the following fields.

Field Description
Name The name to be displayed as the label for the activity in the process.


Provide a short description for the activity.

Output Editor

Use the Output Editor tab to define data for the subprocess to use as input. Any process that calls this process definition must supply the data specified on the Output Editor tab. You can define your own datatype on this tab, and can reference an XML schema stored in the project. Once defined, the data specified on the Output Editor tab becomes the output schema of the Start activity. This data then becomes available to other activities in the process definition.
Tip: From the Select Schema Element Declaration window, select Include WSLD Inline Schemas to display inline schemas from the WSDLs in the module.


The output for the activity is defined by the specified data elements on the Output Editor tab.
