Built-In Functions

Since Version: 3.0

Inside a Pipeline Expression you can access a huge library of functions, which can additionaly simplify your integration and automation tasks. Such utility functions are called Built-In Functions. See the reference docs for a full list of all available functions. If you're missing a function there, please drop a note.


Such a function is always embedded inside a Pipeline Expression and has a structure like this:


Whereas you need to replace group by the util group name, function by the function method name and args by the optional arguments to the function you would like to execute.

Examples for @date

Here is an example to return the current date using such a function without any argument:

And here a fully working example, embedded inside a Pipeline Expression:

- log:
message: "The current date is: #{}"

Examples for @list

cities: "Munich, Bratislava, New York"
- log:
message: "#{@list.size(vars.cities)}"



Examples for @text

- log:
message: "#{@text.lang('Hallo, Herr Meier!')}"




In case you're working with the Online Workbench you can get auto-completion of all Pipeline Functions out-of-the-box:
