Configure error processing

Use the Configure error processor page to configure the way Activator handles messages when it rejects them for any reason. This page enables you to react to message rejection by specifying the inline processing rule(s) or the script to apply to the rejected message.

This feature does not automatically provide for error processing based on the reason for the message rejection. To apply message filtering based on the message rejection reason or time, you must add filtering to the inline processors or to the script that you apply.

About error processing

When Activator rejects a message, it triggers error processing on the message at the moment of rejection.

If you have set an error processor through the Configure error processor page, Activator:

  • Adds the metadata PreviousState to the rejected message. It sets the value of this metadata to the name of the previous message state. This enables you to know what the state of message processing was immediately before rejection.
  • Records the reason for rejection in the metadata RejectedReason.
  • Calls any inline processing rules that you have defined, in the order they are listed.
  • Calls a post-processing script if you have defined one.
