Process Step
The Process step calls a previously saved process and executes it within the current process.
Process Step Properties
After adding a /download/attachments/25952276/Process_step.png?version=1&modificationDate=1491995436748&api=v2 Process step from the Palette to the canvas, you can double-click the step on the canvas and specify the following step properties in the Properties tab displayed at the bottom.
Name
Description
Name
Unique name for the step. You can use alphabets, numbers, and special characters such as -, _. . , and #.
Description
Description for the step (optional).
Enabled
Select this option to enable the step for execution. If it is not enabled, then the step on the canvas is greyed-out.
This option is useful when troubleshooting a process, especially when there are numerous steps in the process.
Error Handling
Select either of the following:
Abort Process - All the steps after the current step are skipped or the entire process is stopped (depending on how you have set the error logging options) if this step stops due to an error.
Ignore Error - The remaining steps in the current process are executed even if this step stops due to an error. This is selected by default.
Choose a process
Process to execute at this step.
Participate in parent process transaction
When selected, the sub-process is transactional. This means that if the parent process fails, the sub-process is rolled back. If the sub-process is not transactional, then even if the parent process fails at some point after the sub-process step, the sub-process still commits.
Caution!  When using any function that declares a private variable within a process, if you call that function from a Process step, the function fails since it is not able to access the private variable.
