Passing Data between Recordings in Control Tower


#1

Hi,

I have a complex workflow requiring the need to create separate recordings to help give structure to the development process. Something like in the following image:

I intend to sequence them in the Control Tower as:
Open Browser -> Download PDF Files -> Extract Information -> Encode to Data Entry Tool

I would like to know how to pass data from one recording to another in a business process. In the workflow above, that would happen in the Extract Information step, which saves certain information from PDF files into variables which will be used in the Encode step. How would I do this from the Control Tower?

@roberto_delgado,

To pass data between bot tasks:

  1. publish them to Control Tower
  2. connect them in one business process
  3. your variables name should match
  4. all variables from previous steps are accessible in the current step
