Deprecation Alert

Please note that this node is being deprecated and will not be offered in the future. This decision does not impact the existing tenants that have access to and are using this node.

The Registry node enables you to set, get or delete data from your instance by referencing user key. You can set or get the data either from structured data or open format.

As part of these operations, you need to specify the store name (where the values are stored) along with the user key.

When you double-click this node, the Registry screen appears with two tabs: Configuration and Transition Actions. The Configuration tab enables you to configure the settings to get, delete, and set operations whereas the Transitions tab provides configuring the node on-enter/on-leave operations.
