Flow Structures are used to organize and store data only in memory. They are not saved to the database. Flow Structures can NOT persist beyond the execution of the Flow in which it is used.
- In a Designer Project, click CREATE DATATYPES/INTEGRATION and select Flow Structure.
- In the Flow Structure window, enter a name in the Structure Type Name field to define the Flow Structure. Define data members and the types for each. Click SAVE.
- Create a new Flow. Attach a Create Data step to the Start and End steps.
- On the Properties panel, click SHOW EDITOR. Define a variable name and select the Flow Structure as the TYPE.
