Creating Flows

Overview

You will design and set up your data transformations on the Flow page. A data flow consists of connected nodes that perform different transformations to process data in Flow Designer. When you build a data flow, you add and connect nodes. You also configure those nodes and workflow properties. To make a new flow, go to Flows Page and select Create a Flow, or go to Home Page and select Create a Data Flow.
Flow connections move in a downstream direction horizontally. In this mode, you will work with sample data to apply and preview results in real-time.

How It works

  1. 1.
    Open the app and select "Create" on the Flows pages
  2. 2.
    Add Transform Nodes. In Design Flow mode, various nodes are available, each performing specific tasks, such as sorting, filtering, or merging data. To include a node in the flow, click on it in the toolbar, and it will be added to the canvas.
    1. 1.
      As the first step, you need to add a Source node and select your source dataset. You can add any number of sources you need.
  3. 3.
    Connect Nodes. If any canvas nodes are selected, a new node is automatically set as an input connector. If not no nodes were selected, you would see a blue frame around the canvas; you need to click on the node you want to connect to.
  4. 4.
    Configure Draft Nodes. Each node features settings that can be adjusted to customize the transformation. Click on a node to open its settings panel and modify the necessary parameters.
  5. 5.
    Realtime Preview. While configuring the node’s parameters, you will see a result table preview in real time.
  6. 6.
    Apply the Transform. Press the Apply button on the settings panel once you are good with the transformation result.
  7. 7.
    Add Destination. Add node Output and set your destination dataset where the result should be saved. You can add more than one destination.
  8. 8.
    Execute Flow. Press the "Run" button to execute the flow.
