Remarks

Key-Value pairs provide a fast technique for permanently creating associations between equivalent records in a source and a target app or service.

Example scenario:

  • A workflow retrieves an order placed in an e-commerce platform (order 232 )
  • The order is integrated into an accounting system. On completion, the accounting system generates it's own order number ORD00412 
  • Use the Set Key-Value Node to associate Key 232  with Value ORD00412 
  • If a change is made to the order in the e-commerce platform and that change needs to be integrated into the accounting system, use the Get Key-Value Node to determine the correlating order ID when the update is made to the accounting system
