NOTE: Using Utility Connectors counts toward your overall Connector and Task Usage.
The Counter Storage Connectors allow you to store a “counter”, perhaps indicating the number of times a particular item has been processed or an event has occurred.
Counters are identified by a “Counter Name” (a unique key value) and hold a single numeric value called “Amount”.
You can use the Increment Counter and Decrement Counter Methods to modify a counter’s value without first having to retrieve it. This avoids the potential race-condition that can occur if you were to use other Storage Connectors for this purpose.
2 Counter Storage Connectors are available:
Cycle Counter Storage: counters stored by this Connector are only accessible from within the Cycle that created it.
Global Counter Storage: counters stored by this Connector are accessible throughout the Account it’s installed in.
The Counter Name must be unique.
The Amount will default to 1.
Decimal values can be used.
