Flow Designer system properties

Flow Designer system properties

Configure how the system processes flows.

These properties are available for Flow Designer.

To set Flow Designer system properties, click Flow Designer > Properties or navigate to the System Properties [sys_properties] table.

Table 1. Properties for Flow Designer
Property Description
Enable flow engine debug messages in the system log

com.glide.hub.flow_engine.debug

Enable or disable logging Flow Designer debug messages in the system log. All debug messages start with a Flow Designer: string prefix.
  • Type: true | false
  • Default value: false
  • Location: Flow Designer > Properties
  • Learn more: Architecture Overview
Number of times that a flow or subflow can be indirectly triggered during a transaction.

com.glide.hub.flow_engine.indirect_recursion_limit

Specify the maximum number of times a flow or subflow permits indirect recursion. Flow Designer ignores all further calls or trigger condition matches from indirect recursion after the limit has been reached. Set the value to any integer equal to or greater than one. The system ignores any property value less than one and instead uses a limit of one. Set the value to one to prevent all indirect recursion.
Maximum actions per flow.

sn_flow_designer.max_actions

Specify the maximum number of actions a flow or subflow can contain. Flow Designer prevents you from adding further actions after the maximum number of actions has been reached. Consider the performance impact raising the maximum number of actions may have. For example, running more actions may conflict with the default transaction quota rule that prevents flows from running longer than an hour.
Maximum steps per action.

sn_flow_designer.max_action_steps

Specify the maximum number of steps that an action can contain. Flow Designer prevents you from adding further steps after the maximum number of steps has been reached. Consider the performance impact raising the maximum number of steps may have. For example, running more steps may conflict with the default transaction quota rule that prevents flows from running longer than an hour.
Disable the flow execution details.

com.snc.process_flow.reporting.enabled

Prevents a flow from reporting flow execution details. To disable the flow execution details, add the com.snc.process_flow.reporting.enabled system property to the System Properties [sys_properties] table and set the value to false. If disabled, details are not saved for actions in the flow. However, the flow context record and related log messages are available. If a flow runs while the property is false, execution details are never available for the flow, even if the property value changes. If a flow runs while the property is true, execution details are always available for the flow, even if the property value changes.
  • Type: true | false
  • Default value: true
  • Location: System Properties [sys_properties] table

Truncate runtime values in the flow execution details step configuration.

com.snc.process_flow.reporting.serialized.val_size_limit

Specify the number of bytes allowed for runtime values in each step in the flow execution details. To prevent truncation, set the value to an integer equal to or less than zero.
  • Type: integer
  • Default value: 16384
