JDBC template outputs JDBC output variables contain values returned from a database that are available to other activities in a workflow or internally to the activity. For details about creating data structures using output variables, see Activity designer variables. These variables can be mapped to all or part of the data returned from a selected payload. For details about mapping output variables to payload data, see Orchestration activity parsing rules. Table 1. Activity designer output fields Field Description Variable name Name of a variable, either Local or Output, that this activity passes. Local Variable that contains a value used within an activity. For example, use a local variable to identify metadata that is processed within an activity before the final value is exported to an output variable. Output Variable that contains a value that is passed to other activities in the workflow.
