  • Continue On Error - Specifies if the automation should continue even when the activity throws an error. This field only supports Boolean values (True, False). The default value is False. As a result, if the field is blank and an error is thrown, the execution of the project stops. If the value is set to True, the execution of the project continues regardless of any error.
    Note: If this activity is included in Try Catch and the value of the Continue On Error property is True, no error is caught when the project is executed.
  • DisplayName - The display name of the activity.


  • Algorithm - A drop-down menu which enables you to select the keyed hashing algorithm you want to use. The following options are available: MD5 (Non-FIPS), RIPEMD160 (Non-FIPS), SHA1, SHA256, SHA384, and SHA512.
  • File Path - The path to the file you want to hash.
