Use the Receive shape to receive a message from a port. You can use it to start an orchestration by setting the Activate property to True, so that a message matching criteria specified in a filter expression will be received and the orchestration instance will execute. You can apply a correlation set to ensure that you correctly receive messages that correspond to a given instance of your orchestration.
To do this
Specify whether this is an activation receive by selecting True or False. If True, the Receive shape must be the first action in the orchestration. If False, your orchestration must be called by another orchestration in order to run.
Filter Expression property
Specify an expression to test properties on the incoming message to decide whether to process it.
