When Start App Action completes, it can pass certain variables to the following Action that can then base its operations on the outcome of the Start App Action. These variables can be used in any input of the following Action that supports Variable Wizard feature.

VariableDetails
Exit code Returns the exit code of finished program or application, if the App has exited before the completion of the Task.
Examples:
  • 0
  • 5
Process ID A PID of the just launched application. The process identifier can be used to further tweak (adjust priority, assign CPU cores, etc.) the app or, for example, to terminate a process that is running too long.
Examples:
  • 6264
  • 47880
Program Returns the location of the program or application.
Examples:
  • C:\CRM\Bin\ParseIncoming.exe
  • D:\Custom Reports\App\initBuilder.exe
Arguments Returns arguments that were attempted to pass to the program or application upon execution.
Examples:
  • "report.csv"
  • arg1 arg2 "additional arg3" arg4
Start-up folder Returns the location of folder in which application was started (i.e., the default folder from application's perspective). Note that the ending backslash character is returned exactly as provided by the user.
Examples:
  • C:\CRM\Output
  • D:\Temporary file\
Completion statusRetrieve Action execution status with a possible value—Successful or Failed. Or Empty, if Action has not been executed yet.
Adjust()Streamline creation of Task workflows even further—instantly make quick variable adjustments such as in-place replacement (all, first, or last occurrence), trimming (whitespaces, quotes, etc.), or changing capitalization. Optionally, set a different display name.
