Data and Variables

Open Source

Data variables can be defined in Bonita Open Solution to accept, manipulate, and manage data for the process.

Variables can be defined

  • globally (for the entire process)
  • locally (accessible only to a single task and its transitions)

The data in these variables are persisted, that is, saved in the Bonita database. Data can also be defined as

  • transient

at the task level only, primarily for use in manipulating data in forms. This data is stored in memory and not persisted.

You can also define some variables to be a single or multiple type.

This section describes the types of variables you can define and use for data handling in Bonita Open Solution.
