While Loop task
The While Loop task lets you make repeated calls to a sub-integration from your current (main) integration until a specified condition is met.
The API Trigger ID and the Integration name identifies the sub-integration you want to run.
The task also lets you collect the response from each sub-integration run and store the value in your current integration for use in downstream tasks. You can use any of the following approach to collect the responses:
- Collate the response of each run in an array variable, where each element of the array has the
response from one particular run. To collate the responses, configure
Collect values from sub-integration output(s)property.
- Aggregate the responses of all the runs in a single variable. To aggregate the responses, configure
Override values from sub-integration output(s)property.
The following table describes the configuration properties of the While Loop task.
||String||Trigger ID of the sub-integration to run.
This value is available in the Trigger ID field of the API Trigger in the sub-integration.
||String||Name of the sub-integration to run.|
||N/A||Condition to terminate the loop. The sub-integration runs till the condition is met.|
||N/A||Values to pass from the current integration to the sub-integration.
The values of this property are in the form of key-value pairs, where the key is a variable
in the current integration, and the value is the corresponding input variable in the
sub-integration. For example, suppose your main integration has the
||N/A||Collate the results of the sub-integration runs.
Every time the sub-integration runs,
you can store the output of the sub-integration in an array variable of the current integration. Enter the
sub-integration's output variable in the Sub-Integration output to collect from
field and select the array variable in current integration from the
Integration variable to collect into drop-down. Each element of the array has the response from a
particular sub-integration run. For example, if the array variable is
||N/A||Read the output variable of a sub-integration run and store it in a variable of
the current integration.
Select the sub-integration's output variable from the Sub-integration output to map from drop-down, and select the corresponding variable in the current integration from the Integration variable to override drop-down. You can send the overridden variable in the current integration to the next sub-integration run by mapping the variable in the Map to additional sub-integration input(s) property. As a result, you can cumulatively aggregate the responses from the sub-integration runs.
||JSON array||The output variable that has the execution details of the sub-integration runs like the sub-integration execution ID, errors messages, and variable values passed during execution.|

Error handling strategy
An error handling strategy for a task specifies the action to take if the task fails due to a temporary error. For information about how to use an error handling strategy, and to know about the different types of error handling strategies, see Error handling strategies.
