Steps Overview

Each Workflow is comprised of one or more steps, with each step representing a single connector/endpoint combination.

These steps appear under the "Workflow Steps" portion of the Workflow page. To add steps, at least one connector needs to have already been applied to the Workflow (see Connectors).

Info

Step Colors

  • Blue: Step headers in blue are initiators, and are candidates for being the first step executed when the workflow is invoked.  
  • Green: Step headers in green are dependent steps and may or may not be executed depending on the specific routing logic built into the workflow.
  • Red: Step headers in red are steps which have produced errors when executed.  These can happen for a variety of reasons, including omitted required values, data type mismatches (ie, a string instead of an integer), or a failure to find an appropriate route in from the Conditions & Routes section.
    • Step headers in red also display a ‘view response’ link on the right-hand side.  This can be clicked to bring up a window which shows what the API service is responding with.  This can be very helpful in debugging. Also, turning on Debug Mode can show the full logical pathway of the ACP Workflow.
