Flow View Page In Flow View, you can access and manage the objects that you have added to or created in the selected flow. You can perform a variety of actions to effectively manage flow development and job execution through a single page in the Designer Cloud® application.

Flow View

Flow View Page

View for Imported Datasets When you select an imported dataset in Flow View, you can review its details in the context panel and select options from its context menu.
View for Dataset with Parameters When you select a dataset with parameters in Flow View, additional options are available in the context panel and its context menu.
View for Recipes For each recipe in Flow View, you can review or edit its steps or create new recipes altogether. You can also create references to the recipe, modify outputs, and create new recipes off of the recipe.
View for Reference Datasets reference dataset is a reference to a recipe's outputs that has been added to a flow other than the one where the recipe is located. When a reference dataset is selected, details are available in the context menu.
View for References When you select a recipe, you can choose to create a reference object off of that recipe. From the recipe context menu, select Create Reference Dataset.
View for Unstructured Datasets An unstructured dataset is an imported dataset that does not contain any initial parsing steps. All parsing steps must be added through recipes that are applied to the dataset. During the import process, you disable the initial steps that are applied to imported datasets. Instead, these steps are added as the first steps of the auto-generated recipe that appears with the dataset in Flow View.
View for Outputs Associated with each recipe is one or more outputs. These publishing destinations can be configured through the context panel in Flow View. Through outputs, you can execute and track jobs for the related recipe.
Share Flow Dialog You can manage access to a flow for other users through the Share Flow dialog. In Flow View, select Flow menu > Share Flow....
Change Dataset Dialog Through the Flow View page, you can change the source that is used for your dataset. In this manner, you can apply the same recipe across datasets with the same schema. When the source dataset has been changed, a new sample is automatically generated for you.
Add Schedule Dialog To add a schedule to your flow, click the drop-down menu in the Flow View page, and select Add Schedule.
Manage Flow Notifications Dialog When email notifications are enabled, flow owners and collaborators can configure the delivery of emails to interested stakeholders based on the success or failure of jobs executed within this flow. From the flow menu, select Manage email notifications.
Manage Parameters Dialog Within a flow, you can create and manage flow parameters, including specifying override values. From the flow menu, select Manage parameters.
Flow Search Panel You can search for objects within your flow. In Flow View, click the Magnifying Glass icon at the top of the page.
Manage Flow Advanced Settings Dialog In the Flow Advanced Settings dialog, you can configure the following settings, which provide finer-grained control and performance tuning over your flow and its job executions. From the flow menu, select Managed advanced settings.
View for Connections For flows that require connections to source data, you can review the details of the connection, whether you created it or it was shared with you.

Select the imported dataset that uses the connection. Then, in the context panel, click the name of the connection.
