Global Variables OWB

June 21, 2008

Several global variables can be accessed in a process flow. How this is done is not documented well. In the example below I have created two variables and assigned them values of the global variables Audit_ID and Number_of_Errors.

Step 1:

Create Process Flow and add two variables: l_audit_id and l_number_of_errors. For both variables select Integer as the data type.

Step 2:

Deploy process flow and execute. After execution the Output Parameters will have the values for the audit_id and the number_of_errors global variables. The variables could be assigned to output parameters of the process flow, input parameters to transformations, mappings or other process flows etc.
