Increment and decrement global parameters in a thread-safe way

Use IncrementGlobalParam() and DecrementGlobalParam() to increment and decrement, respectively, an integer global parameter previosly created using SetGlobalParam() in a thread-safe way (as an "atomic" transaction).

For example, if you need to count how many times a workflow has been executed since a certain moment, you'll need to use these IncrementGlobalParam("myCounter"), because workflow sessions for different records may execute in parallel, so code like
SetGlobalParam("myCounter", GetGlobalParam("myCounter")+1)

would not work.

How to use

Use the function in any of the following ways:

IncrementGlobalParam(name[, step=1])

DecrementGlobalParam(name[, step=1])


  • name: the name of the global parameter (key) to increment or decrement.

  • step (optional, integer): the value by which to increment or decrement the name parameter.





IncrementGlobalParam("myParam", 100)
