Saving data in a data page when running an activity

Suggest edit Updated on August 16, 2021

You can save data that is in a data page to a system of record by including the data page in an activity. By using an activity, you can choose whether to save the data in conjunction with the rest of the transaction, or independently as a separate transaction.

Note: Using an activity to save data in a data page is only recommended for advanced use cases. Whenever possible, use a flow action or Save data smart shape instead of an activity to save data in a data page.
Before you begin: Create and configure a savable data page. For more information, see Creating a savable data page.
  1. In the Steps tab of an activity, in the Method field, enter Save-DataPage.
  2. Optional: To save the data in the data page in a separate transaction, select the WriteNow check box.
  3. Optional: To use the Autopopulate property name function:
    1. Select the Use associated property check box.
    2. In the Autopopulate property name field, enter the name of the autopopulated property
  4. In the Data Page field, enter the name of the data page that you configure in Step 1.
    The name entered must be an autopopulated property that references a savable data type.
  5. Click Save.
