An integer is a whole number such as 987 or 5. Use integer values to represent complete objects and processes that cannot be subdivided, such as the number of calls waiting or the number of agents on duty. An integer is an eight-byte value, which means that it can hold positive or negative numbers of practically any size. Flow runtime supports values from -999999999999999 to +999999999999999 for an Architect integer value. An integer variable has an integer value at runtime, but an expression of 999999999999999 + 1 will cause an error because the result is >999999999999999.
