Prepare a workflow to use a subflow

After you create a subflow, use this procedure to prepare the parent workflow.

  1. On the parent workflow, create a variable similar to what you did on the subflow, but name it something different.

    In the following example, the variable is named Blue Main Variable.

  3. Insert a Run Script activity to return the value from a field to the newly created variable.

  5. In the subflow activity, set the Blue Sub Variable to pass the bluemainvariable to the bluesubvariable.

    ${workflow.scratchpad.bluemainvariable}
