Pull Items at a certain rate

Pull Items at a certain rate

Postby Simul8or » Thu May 18, 2017 1:11 pm

Hello,

I would like my activity to pull items at a certain time rate from a Queue. Additionally the activity should be able to work on multiple items at the same time.

e.g. Paintshop: Pull one Item every 5 minutes that then stays in the Paintshop for 1 hour. Thus the Paint Shop contains 12 items.

Thank you very much!

Have a setup like so:

Queue 1 > Activity 1 > Activity 2 > Queue 2

Activity 1 will have a cycle time of 5 minutes
Activity 2 will have a cycle time of 60 minutes

Ensure that Activity 1's "Routing Out" is set to passive, as you are linking activities back to back.

Set the Replication value of Activity 2 to 12 (do this by selecting the Activity > Additional Tab of the ribbon > Replication value to 12)

ok I have the following concern:

when the cycle time of Activity 1 is 5 minutes, the item is delayed by 5 minutes instead of letting through an item every 5 minutes, right?

That kind of serves the purpose, however every items takes 5 minutes longer than expected.

Or am I missing something?

Thx!
