How do you write the result of an HTTP connector via a Write file to an Azure file storage?

I followed the steps described in: https://docs.thinkwisesoftware.com/docs/sf/process_flows_connectors#write-files-to-an-external-location

In the log I get the message:
[ERR] Process action 'write_file' in processflow 'write_product_to_excel' returned the following message: Process action 'write_file' in processflow 'write_product_to_excel' was not provided a (valid) value for its 'File location' parameter. (ca3b443c)

Hi Vincent, 

It works, setting the variable with the file name in the first decision was the solution. Thank you very much.

Hello Pierius Lycklama A Nijeholt,

The process procedure is execute after the process action, so the process variable with the file name is set too late. If you’d set the process variable in the process procedure of the first Decision process action, it would work.

I hope this helps

The process flow looks like this. For testing purposes is also write the HTTP connector content via a decision to a database.

The Write file process action has the option ‘Use process procedure’ checked. In the assigned process procedure the file name is set.

Can you show the process flow and where in the process flow do you set the parameter value for the file path?
