Set Entity By Name
Element Name: Set Entity By Name
Category: Variable Manipulation
Description: Basic functionality composed of configurable fields that allow setting the value of a previously created entity.
Functionality: Allows for changing the value of a previously configured entity. This value can be modified using the same entity throughout the flow.
Set Entity By Name Action Configuration Fields
[Name]: Unique descriptor of the configuration box for identification purposes in the flow.
Subset: General (required)
[Entity Scope Selector]: Allows indicating the scope of an entity between local and global.
YES: The entity can be set in any scope of the flow, i.e., any running intent.
NO: The entity can only be set in the intent where it is currently in use.
[Entity Selector]: Identifies the entity within a list of entities (previously generated) that will be used to modify its value.
[Value to Set (From an Expression)]: General expression field where a text expression must be entered to modify the previously selected entity. It is also possible to insert the name of an entity that will contain the new data.
mensajeBienvenida -> (string) ‘Welcome, we are here to help you.’
--Input from an Expression
mensajeBienvenida -> (string + Entity) ‘Welcome ’+ @ClientName +’, we are here to help you.’
[Allow Null or Empty Value]: Must be selected between two options YES/NO to indicate whether the entity will allow null values, i.e.,:
YES: It will allow not inserting a value in the entity, thus being able to remain null or empty.
NO: It will consider it an error for the entity to be null or empty, therefore, it must contain information.
[Error Handler]: Selection box where the intent to be activated in case of an error in the Force Execution of Cases action is identified. When an error overflow occurs, the Set_Entity_Error entity will be loaded with the error details if available.

[The Entity Value Obtained from an Expression]: ‘Welcome ’+ @ClientName +’, we are here to help you.’
[Allow Null Value]: NO
[Error Handler]: ErrorHandler
The "mensajeBienvenida" entity has been set with the string value of the welcome message obtained from the resolution of an expression, as illustrated below:
