You can sort data in each column in ascending or descending order by clicking the column name. For example, you can sort the dataflows based on which class they are associated with by clicking the Class column name.

Design

The Design screen contains the following segments, each responsible for different functionalities of the application:

  • Components Toolbar. The components toolbar consists of the components that you can drag onto the canvas to build your dataflow.
  • Services. SERVICES are shared services that can be used by processors and other services to utilize for configuration or task execution.

  • Actions. Use the ACTIONS drop-down to open a different dataflow, publish a dataflow, or revert to the last published version of a dataflow.
  • Flow Status. The Flow Status displays information about the flow including when the flow was published, what was the last published version of the flow, and the status of the flow.
    • Modified (). The flow has been modified since the flow has been published.
    • Current (). The current published version of the flow.
