How to use API AutoFlow

API AutoFlow is divided into five (5) panes.

Navigation Panes

  • [A] Navigation (Left): Tabs to each section. Components are created in the sections for use in the solution.
  • [B] Solution Canvas (Center-Top): Center-Top is the workspace where most of the creation is done.
  • [C] Settings (Center-Bottom): Setting pane for the selected actions, servers, and endpoints.
  • [D] Actions & Simulation (Right-Top): Collection of the actions that users can drag and drop to the Solution Canvas. Data simulation is used to create mock data for each flow.
  • [E] Data, Log & Help (Right-Bottom): Snapshot of the selected action’s data received. Logs for flows with action data/log are applied. Help when the question icon is clicked.
