# skip

A Workflow Engine function that forwards an in-scope object to the next chained moolet using the standard forwarding mechanism, and skips the rest of the workflows in the current engine. This is useful if you have an engine with many workflows. For example, you may only want to process the workflow from the first matching entry filter for performance reasons.

You may also want to use this function to ensure no further actions execute after the first workflow. For example, if a lower action has a more open entry filter.

This function is available as a feature of the Workflow Engine v1.1 download and later.

This function is available for event, alert, and Situation workflows.

This function is only compatible with the "Stop All Workflows" Forwarding Behavior, and the function always returns false.

## Arguments

Workflow Engine function skip has no arguments.

## Example

To use the skip function, set it as the last action in your workflow and ensure Forwarding Behavior is set to “Stop All Workflows”.
