Set External Value Activity


Caches a value in a client application.

Inheritance Hierarchy:



This activity allows a workflow to store a value in the client application that can later be obtained by a Get External Value <T> activity in this workflow, or another workflow in the current application.

Stored values are held by the viewer application. If the user reloads the page, any values set using the Set External Values activity are lost.

In a Workflow:

You would use this activity if your workflow needs to store a value that will be used later on in this workflow, or in another workflow.
