Task Attributes

Each task has the following attributes:

NameThe name of the task; this is only used within Mail & Deploy to identify the task.
Description
The description of the task; the description is displayed in Mail & Deploy Hub (see Hub) and can be requested by consumers of Mail & Deploy API (see API).
CategoryThe category of the task; this is used in the list of tasks to categorize tasks in groups.
Exception BehaviourDetermines what Mail & Deploy shall do if the execution of one of the actions of the task causes an exception (see Exception Handling).

Do Not Handle.
If you select this behaviour, any exception caught by the task will lead to the task failing.

Cancel Task.
If you select this behaviour, any exception caught by the task will lead to the task to be cancelled. Technically, this means, that the task did not fail, because cancelling a task is a controlled means of ending a task.

Continue With Next Action.
If you select this behaviour, any exception caught by the task will lead to the next action to be executed.

Task Parameters 

By using task parameters, data can be passed on to the task by whatever initiates the execution of the task (e.g. a user who requests the execution of the task through Mail & Deploy Hub). Each report parameter has the following attributes:

NameThe name of the task parameter; this is only used within Mail & Deploy to identify the task parameter.
Caption
This is the caption of the task parameter which will be used in Mail & Deploy Hub (see Hub) when users are required to enter the value of the task parameter.
ValuesA list of expression (see Expressions) which will be used as the default values of the task parameter.

You can access the values of task parameters in expressions (see Expressions) within the context of the task (see Task Parameter).


Actions

This is a list of actions (see Actions) that make up the task; whenever the task is being executed, these actions will be executed in sequential order.
