JMS template inputs

You use the Inputs tab of the activity designer to create variables to pass into the activity.

You can test the JMS connection between the MID Server and the connection factory without having to run the acvitity in a workflow context. For details, see Test JMS activity template inputs.
Note: Variable strings in the Inputs tab have a 255 character limit.
