A Decision task invokes one of the two paths in the workflow, depending on whether the logical expression inside the Decision object returns a Yes (True) or a No (False) flag.

To use a decision task, drag and drop the Decision object onto the workflow designer. Configure the object by right-clicking on the object’s header and selecting Properties from the context menu.


This will open the Decision Properties window. The configuration screen provides the interface to create some decision logic.


In the Expression input box, enter an expression. This expression should return a Boolean result, such as True or False. An example of this expression is shown below. The expression here is based on the presence of erroneous records in a Run Dataflow task object.


Note: The right-hand pane displays the object tree (highlighted in yellow). You can double-click on an object to add it to your expression.

This concludes the configuration of the Decision object in Astera Centerprise.
