How to Use the K2 Destination Plan per Slot No Destinations rule

K2 Destination Plan

In this article we will learn how to use one of the K2 blackpearl destination rule – Plan per slot (no destinations).

The K2 blackpearl Plan per slot (no destinations) Destination Rule can be used for activity with server events. K2 User Destinations cannot be configured when plan per slot is used and the server creates one instance per slot. Each instance will have its own activity data fields.

K2 Automated Testing Software

BenchQA allows full test automation of K2, including fully automated K2 SmartForms and K2 Workflow testing. It promotes test driven development for K2 and ensures continued quality assurance for K2 solutions. Easily apply changes to test cases to accommodate changes to K2 apps and ensure all apps are regression tested to avoid defects and assure continuous quality.
