Return Value

This action returns a value from the robot.

The value is returned back to the client that initiated this robot run. This would normally be Java or .Net code using the Kapow API to execute robots on RoboServer. The Return Value step action is also used to return values as Kapplet results and REST responses.

Prior to version 7.2 of Kapow Katalyst the returned value may also be handled by a storage environment, that stored the value in a database. From Kapow Katalyst version 7.2 and forward, values are stored in databases using the Store in Database action.
