Using a Dynamic Process Counter Within Dell Boomi Tutorial

Dell Boomi continues to lead the iPaaS platform and for a third year in a row, Dell Boomi AtomSphere, a leading provider of Integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS), has again been positioned by Gartner, Inc., in the “Leaders” quadrant of the Magic Quadrant for Enterprise iPaaS.

Tallan’s Dell Boomi Certified development team is constantly and regularly providing content and context to help our clients achieve their integration goals with our preferred iPaaS platform.

This Tallan video explains the use of a dynamic process counter that can be used to iteratively repeat over a process in a loop until a particular “count” has been met or exceeded.

This is useful and very common in most programming use cases but not as straightforward to implement dynamically in a Dell Boomi Process.


The Data Process Shape uses the following Groovy code:


import java.util.Properties;

import java.io.InputStream;

import com.boomi.execution.ExecutionUtil;


for( int i = 0; i < dataContext.getDataCount(); i++ )


            InputStream is = dataContext.getStream(i);

            Properties props = dataContext.getProperties(i);

          // Retrieve current Process Property value

         propValue = ExecutionUtil.getDynamicProcessProperty(“MyCounter”);


           // Convert string value to int to do math

           int intValue = Integer.parseInt(propValue);

            boolean_variable= true;


         // Increment value by 1

         intValue = intValue + 1;


        // Convert int value back to String

        propValue = Integer.toString(intValue);


       // Set the process property

       ExecutionUtil.setDynamicProcessProperty(“MyCounter”, propValue, boolean_variable);

  dataContext.storeStream(is, props);
