Alternatively, you can get in touch with Global Support with your requirements. We will add the required connectors/actions/triggers for you in no time.

FlowServices

What are FlowServices?

The FlowServices feature enables you to create complex integrations that require advanced data transformation and custom logic implementation. Here you can easily build a FlowService by adding steps and selecting the constructs including Connectors, Controls, FlowServices, and Services from within the steps. The FlowServices editor is visually enhanced to offer ease of use and is very interactive. FlowServices currently supports a wide range of connectors and comes with several built-in services that makes your job easier. FlowServices provide you with rich data mapping capabilities, a familiar debugging mechanism, a large collection of built-in services, and more.

A FlowService mainly has two parts:

What are the differences between Workflows and FlowServices?

Workflows and FlowServices enable you to automate and optimize tasks based on a set of predefined rules and business logic. These features give you the power to connect apps, devices, and on-premises systems with only clicks and zero code. Although Workflows and FlowServices help you to accomplish the same goal, there are significant differences between both the features.

What is Smart Mapping?

Smart mapping provides you with recommendations while mapping the pipeline data and utilizes a series of algorithms to determine the likely accuracy of a given suggestion, enabling you to toggle between high, medium, and low levels of mapping confidence. A Machine Learning (ML) algorithm is applied to provide the suggestions. The ML algorithm learns from the mappings you create and provides suggestions automatically to map similar fields. The algorithm benefits from having more data from more number of users.

How do I change the time zone for a user profile in webMethods.io Integration. The Execution Results and Execution History are shown in PST. Is there a place where I can configure the time zone preference?

Using the App Switcher, go to My Cloud and in Software AG Cloud, click My Cloud > Administration. On the Administration page, edit the user profile. Under Locale Information, select the required time zone. Save the changes, log out, and then again log in to see the changes.

Note that any time stamp displayed in webMethods.io Integration is based on the user’s registered time zone specified in Software AG Cloud. Not all the time zones in Software AG Cloud are supported in webMethods.io Integration. If a time zone in Software AG Cloud is not supported, then the time stamp in webMethods.io Integration defaults to the Pacific Standard Time (PST) time zone.

What are Conditional Constructs?

Conditional steps are those steps that perform different actions based on the result of evaluated conditions/expressions. Types of conditional constructs include:

What are Transformers?

The purpose of transformers is to accomplish multiple data transformations on the pipeline data in a single step as compared to using normal steps one after another. Transformers are services that are inserted into and run within a Transform Pipeline step. Transformers act as a collection of normal steps embedded in a single Transform Pipeline step.

How can I trigger the execution of a FlowService from an external system?

webMethods.io Integration allows you to trigger the execution of a FlowService from an external system. This option provides you with another way to trigger FlowService executions from a software application, for example, a REST client, apart from manual and scheduled executions from the user interface.

Triggers

How do I edit an existing trigger?

You can edit an existing trigger from the workflow in which it is being used or can edit it from a project by navigating to Configurations > Workflow > Triggers tab.
Click here to know how to do it.

How to add conditions in triggers?

You can add conditions in triggers by using ‘Filters’ option located at the bottom of the Trigger Output Data screen, while configuring the trigger.
Know more about Conditions.

Why some of my triggers take longer time to execute?

Some triggers constantly check for updates in the external services and run in real time, whereas some triggers check for updates in external services periodically, for example, every five minutes, and hence take more time. The second type of triggers are called Polling triggers and can be identified by the clock sign given beside the trigger service icon.

Is it possible to change trigger settings for only a specific workflow even if the trigger is connected to multiple workflows?

No, if a trigger is being used in multiple workflows, then any changes made to it will be reflected in all the workflows it is being used in. If you don’t want to change the trigger settings for the rest of the workflows, then it’s advised that you create a new trigger.

How do I delete an existing trigger?

You can delete an existing trigger from a particular workflow it is being used in, via the Workflow Settings panel. If you want to delete the trigger permanently from the project, you can do so by navigating to the Configurations > Workflow > Triggers tab.
Click here to know more about it.

Webhooks

How do I secure my webhooks?

You can secure your webhooks by adding basic authentication or appending authentication tokens to webhooks.

How can I retrieve the response of my workflow through webhook?

You can use Return Data on Sync Webhook action in your workflow to send the response of the workflow to the webhook.

Conditions

How to use AND operator to set up a condition?

You can use AND operator when you want the workflow to proceed only if all the specified conditions are met.
Click here to know how to set up multiple conditions using AND operator.

How to use OR operator to set up a condition?

You can use OR operator when you want the workflow execution to proceed if any of the specified condition is met.
Click here to know how to set up multiple conditions using ‘OR’ operator.

How to define multiple conditions that work like If-Else statement?

You can use Switch action to define multiple possible execution paths for your workflow. With Switch action, you can add one or more cases. Each case contains one or more conditions and a next step that will be performed if the defined conditions are met. The action also includes a Default case that specifies the action to be executed if none of the condition is met.
Click here to know more about using Switch statement in your workflow.

Audit Logs

Who can view the audit log screen?

The audit logs screen is available only for Admin and Owner of the project. If you have been assigned a custom role by the tenant admin/owner, you cannot see the audit logs.
