This sub-element defines a list of variables that need to be extracted from the ESB message and set in the Business Process Manager context for that particular process instance. If left unspecified, the globalProcessScope value defaults to true when the variables are set.
The list consists of mapping elements, each of which can have the following attributes:
  • esb

    This is an optional attribute containing the name which is to be used by the JBPM. If it is not supplied, then the name in esb is used instead.
  • default
    Use this is an optional attribute to hold a default value if the esb MVEL expression cannot find one that is set in the Enterprise Service Bus message.
  • process-scope
    This is an optional parameter consisting of a Boolean value. Use it to override the setting of this mapping's e globalProcessScope.
