Modifying dataslots
You can modify a dataslot listed in the Fields section by selecting it and clicking Modify, to open the Field Properties dialog box in which you can edit the selected dataslot’s properties. The fields displayed in the Field Properties dialog box depends upon the type of the dataslot being edited. You can make the necessary modifications and then click OK.
Note: You cannot modify predefined system dataslots.
For a CHARACTER dataslot in a workstep with Flow presentation format, you can click in the Map column to map the dataslot to the corresponding dataslot in the Web application. You must map to the same dataslot type.
Important: Do not use dataslots with predefined values in a Start workstep. If any CHARACTER dataslot has predefined attachments and you add this type of dataslot to the Start workstep, these attachments will not be visible in Business Process Portal when an instance is created.
Note: For Business Processes, you can use the Alerts tab to associate an alert with a Start workstep when it is completed. For more information, see Associating an alert with a workstep.
