Nested routings and Custom Data


I am working and testing different solutions with Nested Routings.

For normal operations in a routing I can add Custom Data for each routing step.

However when I add a special routing as a nested routing within my routing I can not add Custom data

for this routing step.

Are there any workarounds available? Am I doing it the wrong way?

    Hi Johan,

    I would suppose that nested router is not treated as a router step but rather as a link to that router because there is no actual activity done at the step-link but rather at the actual steps of the nested router. So, if you can assing Custom Data to nested NC router but can't for Special router, then it is probably a bug. Otherwise, my guess is true and you can't assign Custom Data to step-link at all.

    • Hi Sergiy,

      I have tried also with a nested NC router. But that neither gives the opportunity to add a custom data field, so I guess

      it is not possible. We have to search for another way to solve this.

    This is not a bug. When custom data was added to Operation Router Steps, it was not envisioned that customers would need custom data fields at the nested router steps themselves.

    It is, however, a logical enhancement to Routers.
