Data Output

A Data Output shows the results produced by a process. It’s similar to an output parameter.

You create Data Outputs in processes by adding the Data Input element to the diagram.

You create Data Outputs in a Task by defining the Output attribute. Data Outputs aren’t visually represented in the diagram.
