Input and Output Ports

Transferring files between tasks.

A script might require more than just user input, for example, it needs an input file such as a result file or .csv file, which has been generated by a previous task. In the same way the script typically produces an output file or multiple files placed in a certain directory.

The required inputs and outputs must be synchronized with input and output ports in the task.

Figure 1.

Two tasks can be linked together by connecting the input and output ports in the block diagram.

Figure 2.
When linking two tasks together Pulse will establish the process sequence and verify matching port information.

Figure 3.

Tasks can have multiple input and output ports. Each port can have only one data type, file or directory, but it can hold multiple variables.

Refer to Variables on how to define variables prior to associating them to a task.
