Introduction to Exception Handling

Last Updated: 12/07/2015 Introduced in Verision: 2.0
“Exception Handling,” by definition, is the process of responding to the occurrence, during computation, of exceptions – anomalous or exceptional events requiring special processing – often changing the normal flow of program execution. Exception handling should be considered when planning a workflow. This includes identifying points in a workflow where data (or lack of data) could cause an error and inserting components to work around that potential issue.
Additionally, there are two strategies that can work in tandem:
1) General exception handling caught by the Catch Exception step in a workflow
2) Targeted exception handling by setting up the Create Outcome on Exception setting on a specific component in a workflow
