# 7.19. Clara Pipeline Payload Entry¶

Payload entries are name / path pairs defined in the pipeline definition for the currently executing pipeline for the current operator.

The name of a payload entry can be empty (zero length string). Though only a single entry can have an empty name for any set of inputs or outputs.

Clara remaps operator input and output paths as necessary prior to starting a pipeline. The path remapping is done to enable the output of one operator (example: “/data/output”) to be mapped to the input of another operator (example: “/app/input”).
