Build integrations in Flowgear using what we call Workflows. The building blocks of a Flowgear Workflow are Nodes and Flow Lines.
Nodes represent specific tasks such as reading a value or splitting a data set into individual transactions. A subset of Nodes are Connectors, which enable connections to specific endpoints, such as Salesforce or Microsoft SQL Server.
Flow Lines specify how Nodes are linked. There are two types of Flow Lines:
- Execution Flow Lines which control the sequence of steps
- Data Flow Lines which control the flow of data between Nodes
You do all this and more by using the Flowgear Console. The Console is a browser-based graphical development interface in which you drag and drop integration items, specifying links between Nodes to create a Workflow.
Add a Node by clicking the + button.
You can drag Nodes around by the Node Header (black strip at the top).
Connect Nodes by dragging from the Flow Sockets. Dark blue and red Flow Sockets control the order in which Nodes will execute. Light blue Flow Sockets represent Properties on the Node and control how data is sent between Nodes.
Connect Data Flow Lines to the right Node Properties
When Nodes are too far away to drag a Flow Line, click an output Flow Socket (right hand side of Node) to select it, then click the input Flow Socket (left hand side of the target Node).
