Load Entity

This post is referring to Vahana 2 (beta version). To check the document for production, please go to vDesigner-v1.0


When this task executes, it loads and activates the entity for data transaction. The data transaction includes the activities such as setting the data or getting data from a specific data path or data object.

Steps to Configure

  1. On the Event Configuration page, find the Task panel.
  2. In the Task panel, search and find the Load Entity task.
  3. Drag the Load Entity task from the Task panel to the Execution panel.
  4. Under Load Entity, a group of boxes appears.
  5. In the boxes, configure different properties as follows:
Reference NameIn this box, enter the name of the task. Also, the system generates a reference name by default that you can change.Yes
Select EntityIn this box, you can configure an entity that you want to load and activate. The application environment can consist of several pre-defined entities to manage a variety of business data.

To select and configure an entity type:
–> In the Select Entity box, click the application tree icon (), and the Event Configuration page displays the Select Entity panel.
–> The Select Entity panel displays the tree of entity types.
–> In the tree, select the entity type (For example: – User Address).
–> After you select the entity, click Select, and the entity is successfully configured.
PathIn this box, define the entity’s path that stores the transaction related data. The “Load Entity” task accesses this path to load and activate the entity.

By using this task, you can load the parent entity and the child entity. If you want to load the parent entity, you only need to define the name of the parent entity in the path.

If you want to load the child entity, you need to mention the name of the parent and the child entity. In this case, the parent entity will refer to the child entity as follows:

#Sample entity path:
User Address.City

In the above syntax, the parent entity, “User Address,” is referring to the child entity, “City.” The “City,” as a child entity, will store the city of the user.
Business Rule (Optional Step)In this box, you can configure a business rule to determine the execution of the Load Entity task. If the user’s action satisfies the condition in the business rule, the Load Entity task is executed.

To configure the business rule:
–> In the Business Rule box, click the application tree icon (), and the Business Rule panel opens.
–> In the Business Rule panel, click CreateNew to configure the new business rule.
  1. After you configure the related properties, click Save to configure the Load Entity task.
