You can define how errors, which are not caught by standard error handlers, are handled during a workflow run by adding a global error handler to the workflow schema. You can add one global error handler to a workflow schema.

About this task

Important:

Workflows that contain a Default error handler element are not compatible with Orchestrator 5.5.x or earlier.

Prerequisites

  • Create a workflow.

  • Open the workflow for editing in the workflow editor.

  • Add some elements to the workflow schema.

Procedure

  1. Drag a Default error handler element to the workflow schema.
  2. (Optional) Add schema elements between the Default error handler element and the Throw exception element to specify how global workflow errors are handled.

Results

You added a global error handler to a workflow. When an error that is not caught by standard error handlers in the workflow occurs, the global error handler performs the specified actions before ending the workflow run.
