Set a variable into context and retreive later using cron

New Contributor

Hello!

I have a flow that the first box is scheduled with cron. The cron is configured to execute every hour.

At the start of the flow, I have to read a variable that I have set at the end of the last execution.

How could I set a variable a variable at the end of the flow and how to read it at the start of the next execution?

I have searched a lot and I saw something about context variable and counters. Maybe is it a way?

Thanks!

Best regards,

Robert

You can use Put/Fetch Distributed Map Cache processors to set some value for the variable(attribute) at the end of flow then retrieve the already set value at starting of the flow.

Flow:

1.Trigger the flow with cron
2.FetchDistributedMapCache Processor //to fetch the value that got set up last execution
3.do some processing
4.PutDistributedMapCache Processor //set the new value for the variable

Refer to this link to configure/Usage of Put/Fetch DistributedMapCache processors.
