Introduction

The "Dynamic User-Defined DataPower Activity" is a DataPower Orchestration Policy Activity that allows you to reference one or more DataPower "Processing Rules" by allowing you to dynamically attach to the non-pipeline version of the policy by referencing the "User-Defined Category" of a Dynamic User-Defined DataPower Policy (non-pipeline version).

Each policy must be attached to a service operation. The attachment sequence should be non-pipeline version first followed by the pipeline version. When the policy gets deployed with the service to DataPower, it matches the specified "User-Defined Category" to the correct "Dynamic User-Defined DataPower Policy," searches for the name of each DataPower "Processing Rule" (i.e., Rule Name) in the DataPower domain and executes the rule based on the sequence specified in the policy.

Configuration Options

The policy includes the following configuration options:

Name

Allows you to specify a unique name for the activity.

User-Defined Category

Allows you to reference the "User-Defined Category" of a Dynamic User-Defined DataPower Policy (non-pipeline version) that includes a single or multiple DataPower "Processing Rules" you would like to execute.

Input Variable

A check-box that allows you to designate the input to the DataPower "Processing Rule." You can specify the default message or user defined message.

Input Variable

A check-box that allows you to designate the input to the DataPower "Processing Rule." You can specify the default message or user defined message.

  • Message - A predefined variable that stores the results of the message. 
  • User Defined - A user defined variable that you defined in an Invoke Service Activity.

Output Variable

A check-box that allows you to designate where the output of the DataPower "Processing Rule" should be stored. You can specify the default message or user defined message.

  • Message - A predefined variable that stores the results of the message. 
  • User Defined - A user defined variable that you defined in an Invoke Service Activity.
