    The activity property dialog box appears.

  2. Click the Inputs tab.

    Note: For some user interaction activities, the inputs are defined on the Data subtab.

  3. Define the input for the activity.

    Note: To set a variable, a java object, or other expressions, see Defining Activity Inputs Using Expressions for more information.

  4. Click OK.

  • For the client input, select the name of the client you want to check.
