In my process’ pipeline I have a top level document, say “doc”. It is generated as the ouput of one of the process steps.
What I want is that this document is not present in the input pipeline of one of the further steps in the process. For some (internal to our project) reasons, I can not use the “express pipeline” option.
With a picture: A → B → C → D
The step A generates “doc” as a top level document and puts it to the pipeline. The step B does something with “doc” (modifies it). I’d like to have it so that the step D does not have “doc” as its input (not only in its service signature but really in the pipeline).
I tried to put the step C in between, and put a map step there which drops “doc”, but it still appears in the inbount pipeline for the step D. With a subdocument there are no problems, i.e. if I have a “subdoc” field in “doc” and drop this subdoc in the step C, then I have “doc” without subdoc in the step D.
So how can I make a top level document disappear from the process’ pipeline?
Thank you for your suggestions!
