Exception Handling, by definition, is the process of responding to the occurrence, during computation, of exceptions . Exceptions are defined as anomalous or exceptional events requiring special processing, which often means, changing the normal flow of program execution. Exception handling should be considered when planning a workflow. This includes identifying points in a workflow where data (or a lack of data) could cause an error, and inserting components to work around that potential issue.
Additionally, there are two strategies that can work in tandem:
- General exception handling caught by the Catch Exception step in a workflow
- Targeted exception handling by setting up the Create Outcome on Exception setting on a specific component with in a workflow
