I used the ‘Set Multiple Variables’ and then the ‘Get Multiple Variables’ to consolidate a flow to create document form a specific template, depending on the payload passed.

One clarifying (noob) question - in this context, the ‘Get Multiple Variables’ module and the subsequent modules after it will only execute after a ‘Set Multiple Variables’ module has succeeded, won’t it? This route won’t fail on the grounds of the variable being undefined, unless all other paths have failed first?

I’m just starting with Make and I’m trying to understand the order of operations when using a Router.

Maybe answering my own question here as I discover more.

The principle is - always make sure the route that contains the converger module is ordered below the routes which are setting the variables, or set it as the ‘fallback’ so that it always runs last.

Noting that the documentation clarifies what I was looking for:

Routes are processed sequentially, not in parallel. Make won’t process the second route unless it finishes processing the first one.

The fallback route always runs last, no matter which position it takes in the Order routes window.


In my context I’ve reordered the routes and set the converger route to the fallback.


Good questions @MichaelLovell !

So routes from a router are processed left to right and top to bottom.

So you will want to Get Variables after your other Set Variables have been populated.

There are also times that I will use an IfEmpty() function here also.

If the variable is empty, then put something else in it’s place.

Hope that helps!
