iSM - How to get the agent type during a process flow runtime execution
Hi All,

Is there a ifl, agent or specialregister I can use to get the agent type for the last executed agent in a process flow? I need something similar to the iway.lastnode and iway.priornode special registers for the agent name

I want to use a catch agent( com.ibi.agents.XDCatchAgent) in all my process flows to trap any error edges encountered during a process execution in order to route the error payload to a generic error handling process flow. I want to make the process of trapping errors in my main process flows to be as lightweight and generic as possible.

The only thing I am missing is the agent type (It would also be nice if all agents generated the same error doc/payload but thats a conversation for another day)

iSM8.0.2
