1 Introduction

<ISPIPELINE> can be used to call a pipeline from an ISML template. The resulting pipeline dictionary of the executed pipeline is stored in the current pipeline dictionary, using a key provided by the attribute alias .

2 Syntax

  pipeline = "( {String} | {ISML expression} )"
  [ params = "{ISML expression}" ]
  alias = "( {String} | {ISML expression} )"

3 Example

In this example, <ISPIPELINE> executes the start node LoginCheck of pipeline MyTestPipeline. Two parameters (param1, param2) are submitted to the pipeline via a Map object. The pipeline dictionary that results from executing MyTestPipeline-LoginCheck is stored in the current pipeline dictionary under the resultDict key.

<ISCreateMap mapname="ParameterName" key0="param1" value0="foo" key1="param2" value1="bar">
<ispipeline pipeline="MyTestPipeline-LoginCheck" params="#ParameterName#" alias="resultDict" />

This attribute is required.
alias = String | ISML expression
This attribute specifies the key under which the pipeline dictionary resulting from the execution of the called pipeline is stored in the current pipeline dictionary.

4.3 params

This attribute is optional.
