Through the Flow View page, you can access and manage all objects in your flow. For each imported dataset, recipe, or other object in your flow, you can perform a variety of actions to effectively manage flow development and job execution through a single page in the
|D s webapp|
If you have enabled Deployment Manager, avoid making changes in Flow View on a Production instance of the platform.
NOTE: If the displayed flow has been shared with you, some options are not available.
Flow View page
The imported datasets in the flow or reference datasets added to the flow are listed on the left side of the screen. Associated with each dataset can be one or more recipes, which are used to transform the source data.
When a user is given access to a flow, all of the following actions are available to that user, except for editing details and deleting the flow.
Make a copy: Create a copy of the flow.
NOTE: The copied flow is independent of the source flow, but the original source datasets are connected.
- a job is executed
- a job is executed by schedule
a sample is collected
Tip: You can also apply variable override values when generating a new sample. See Samples Panel.
NOTE: When you edit an imported dataset, if a variable is renamed, a new variable is created using the new name. Any override values assigned under the old variable name for the dataset must be re-applied. Instances of the variable and override values used in other imported datasets remain unchanged.
To change the value that is applied when a job is executed, you can:
- Click Edit all. Specify the values for each variable in the flow.
Hover over the entry for a specific variable. Click Edit and set the override value.
Tip: You can always revert to using the default value.
For more information on executing jobs via API, see API Workflow - Run Job on Dataset with Parameters.
When you select a dataset with parameters in Flow View, you can review the parameters that have been specified for the selected dataset in the right panel.
- Scheduled destinations are populated whenever the flow's schedule is triggered and the destination's recipe is successfully executed.
For more information, see Overview of Automator.
Run Job: Click Run Job to queue for immediate execution a job for the manual destinations. You can track the progress and results of this task through the Jobs tab.
NOTE: This feature may not be enabled in your instance of the platform. For more information, please contact your
Download logs: Download the logs for the job. If the job is in progress, log information is likely to be incomplete.
View for References
When you select a recipe, you can choose to create a reference dataset off of that recipe. A reference dataset is a dataset that is a reference to the output generated from a recipe contained in another flow. Whenever the upstream recipe and its output data are changed, the results are automatically inherited through the reference to the reference dataset.
Connection Type: For more information, see Connection Types.
Owner: User that owns the connection. This user can modify connection properties.
