This walkthrough explains how to create a custom masking activity in your BizDataX project.
If you have a big and complex main workflow, custom activities allow you to break down your workflow into small segments (activities) or to reuse the same activity multiple times in your workflows. Your main workflow will be easier to understand and manage.
