Order of execution

When multiple connectors exit a single step, Ricoh ProcessDirector must determine which connector the job should follow to the next step. This value indicates which connector Ricoh ProcessDirector should evaluate first, second, third, and so on, when it tries to choose which connector the job should use.

Values:

Integers corresponding to the total number of connectors that exit the current step.

Database name

Connector.Order

Usage notes:

  • The default Order of execution is the order that the connectors were created in.
  • If a step has more than one connector leaving it, the Order of execution value is added to the label on the connector before the value of the Rule name.
  • If you change the Order of execution value of a connector to 1, that connector becomes the first connector evaluated. The Order of execution values for the other connectors are updated accordingly.
    For example, you have four connectors, and change the Order of execution value for one of them from 3 to 1. As a result, the connector that previously had its Order of execution value set to 1 is changed to 2. The connector that had its Order of execution value set to 2 adjusts the value to 3 and the value of the fourth connector remains unchanged.
  • If you change the Order of execution value of a connector from 5 to 2, that connector becomes the second connector evaluated. The Order of execution values for the other connectors are updated accordingly.
    For example, you have six connectors, and change the Order of execution value for one of them from 5 to 2. As a result, the connector that previously had its Order of execution value set to 2 is changed to 3. The connector that had its Order of execution value set to 3 adjusts the value to 4. The connector that had its Order of execution value set to 4 adjusts the value to 5 and the value of the first and sixth connectors remain unchanged.
  • In the legacy user interface, if the Order of execution value of a connector is set to a value equal to or greater than the total number of connectors coming from the step, that connector becomes the last connector in the Order of execution.
    For example, you have four connectors and change the Order of execution value for one of them from 2 to 7, but the value is actually registered as 4. The connector that previously had its Order of execution value set to 4 is changed to 3. The connector that had its Order of execution value set to 3 has the value changed to 2 and the value of the first connector remains unchanged.
