Process flow settings

Introduction

Process flow settings are used to manage settings and behaviour for the process flow as a whole:

The ability to update some settings will vary, depending on the version status. For example, you can't add flow variables to a deployed version.

Understanding process flow settings

Process flow settings are summarised below.

Use queued time

Some process flow steps (connectors, filters, set variables, transforms, etc.) can be configured to use dynamic/relative dates, where the date is relative to the time the process flow is initialised.

With the introduction of queues for process flow runs, all process flows are added to a queue when they are initialised (either by a defined trigger, or a manual run). This means that the time a flow is initialised is not the same as the time the flow actually runs - sometimes the run will be almost instant, but in busier periods there may be some minutes between starting and running a flow.

To prevent cases where records are missed because they were added between the time a flow was initialised and the time it actually ran, the Use queued time process flow setting can be used. This allows you to choose whether any relative dates should be based on the time that the process flow is initialised or the time it is queued.

This option defaults to true for all new process flows.

Labels

View and update labels associated with this process flow. You can remove an existing label, add new labels from the dropdown list, or create and add a brand-new label.

5

Email failure notifications

Use the dropdown list to select a notification group to receive an email alert if a process flow run fails.

6

Deploy

7

Variables

Define flow variables and then reference these values throughout the entire process flow.

8

Versions

All existing versions of a process flow are displayed. From here you can select any version to view the flow at that point in time. You can also choose to deploy the currently selected draft or inactive version, and to duplicate any version of a process flow.
