The Start Node has no execution behaviour but is used to define the first step in a Workflow. Connect the first Node you want to execute to the Start or Run Now Execution Flow Connectors

Execution Outputs

Start

Default output to connect to for tasks.

Run Now

The output to provide for on-demand execution if both Run Now and Always On are supported.

Any Error

Fires whenever a Node raises an error and the error is not handled directly on the Node. See Error Handling for more information.

All Errors

Fires whenever a Node raises an error regardless of whether the Node has a directly-attached error handler. See Error Handling for more information.

Properties

Last Error Info

Type: String Output
Provides a description of the last error to have occured.

Remarks

Flowgear Workflows support both Run Now and Always On execution modes. Run Now allows for on-demand use by a user or API call while Always On allows for Workflows that contain Triggers and execute continously. Users indicate which of these options is available from the Workflow Design Settings Pane.

Supporting Always On and Run Now

See https://flowgear.me/s/xbJCwfY for an example of this pattern.
