Assignment

A BPMN 2.0 Assignment element enables data to be copied between messages and variables within a BPEL Process. An Assignment element maps to a BPEL 2.0 assign activity and copies the specified value from the source to the target.

In Enterprise Architect, Assignment elements should be created in the Assignments package in SupportingElements. If they are created elsewhere, they cannot be enacted correctly.
