Excerpt

When you create a flow task in Plan View, you first search for the flow that you wish to run. Then, you specify the task to execute on the flow in the right context panel.

When a task is executed, the recipes in the flow that have been selected in the task are executed, and if successful, their selected outputs are generated.

Info

NOTE: In a flow,all recipes that you wish to have executed by the corresponding task must have a defined output object. For each output object, you must create at least one write settings or publication object. During plan runs, these objects are not validated, and missing outputs are ignored.
