Alert for BPM Transformation Step


Hi I am trying to think of a way to get the information from my alert transformation step into my Alert Message.

The scenario is a multiline container called XML_Collect mapping to XML_Output a single container with the XML messages merged.

If I encounter an error with mapping, currently I am raising an Alert with Process <Process ID> and Long Text Transformation Failure.

I have the Transform step in a Block and an exception branch for the Alert. I am going to instigate a Container Operation step to fill my Container variables with information about the error.

In the BPM Workflow Log I can see the Transformation1 Container Instance with variables such a MAPPING and MESSAGES_IN and _EXCEPTIONS in it.

Can I reference this container in my Container Operation.

Ideally I would like to know which XML message from the multiline container generated the mapping error. This would help in correcting.

I have read some information on a UDF calling Alerts but I am not sure if this is the method to use.
