With Flux, to design multi-step workflows — complete with dependencies, conditional branching, and looping — you don’t need to be a software developer. Drag-and-drop visual workflow creation defines workflows without scripting and allows staff to visualize workflow logic, without having to resort to complex and non-intuitive scripting.
Actions, triggers, and other processes are found in the designer’s side panel, as well as the ability to create the flows that connect them. Software developers also have the option to include custom-designed actions into their workflows through the visual designer.
A custom action is an action that you create, invoking your custom code and accepting any custom parameters you require, that can be used in the drag-and-drop interface of the Flux Designer. This allows you to expose API-level functionality to the end users who visually design your workflows; your users don’t need any knowledge of Java coding to use the custom triggers and action.
Simply locate the the action or trigger that you’d like to use in a workflow, click and drag onto the canvas.
Flows tell Flux what sequence your triggers and actions will run in. To add a flow between your processes, select the Connect tool from the Designer Dashboard and then express to Flux which triggers and/or actions should be run and in what order by clicking and hold the left mouse button on the action you wish to draw the flow from and dragging your cursor to the process you wish to connect.
The Flux visual designer makes it simple, and intuitive, to create dynamic and responsive multi-step workflows.
