Progress OpenEdge pickup

Progress OpenEdge pickup

This consumer is used to call a Progress OpenEdge procedure. This consumer can poll for messages.

Calling the procedure is based on a built-in timer. The called procedure has no input parameters and one or more LONGCHAR output parameter(s).

If a procedure needs to be called with an input parameter and an output parameter, you should use the OpenEdge Gateway.

The output parameter will be stored in the ConnectMessage as a string MessagePart with the MessagePart name as its part-name.

 In the table below, you will find an explanation of these properties. All attributes with a ‘*’ are mandatory.




By default, we fill this out with the technical ‘tag’, followed by a serial number. Changing the name is optional.
