Output Port: Port X is invalid because Output Connection for port X is not defined

Contributor

Hello All,

I dragged an Output Port in canvas inside a Process Group and I am getting error that - Port X is invalid because Output Connection for port X is not defined.

What configuration am I missing?

Thanks!!

You need to connect the output port to some other object outside of the process group the output port is in.

For example, I have a output port in a process group

In the level above the process group, if I hover the cursor over the process group an icon appears

Now, I left click, hold and drag the cursor over to a processor, funnel or another process group with an input port, another window will pop up with the name of the output port

Select ADD and then you'll see a connection to the object, if you go back into the original process group, you'll see the output port is ready to be started and there you go.
