Workflow Node

The Workflow Node allows users to incorporate a sub-workflow or the same workflow within the main workflow. It is particularly useful for encapsulating a series of steps that are repeated or logically grouped.

Adding and Configuring a Workflow Node

  1. Insert Workflow Node:

    1. From the 'Add Node' panel, select the Workflow Node and place it onto the canvas.

    2. Select which workflow you need to add to the canvas and then click on that workflow to add it to the main workflow canvas.

Note: You can select an existing sub-workflow or create a new one. Existing workflows can be chosen from a list, while new ones can be crafted by defining a new series of nodes.

Configuration Tabs for Workflow Node

Input Params Tab

Configure the input parameters that the sub-workflow will accept from the main workflow.

  • Passing Parameters:

    • Determine which data from the main workflow will be passed into the sub-workflow. This may involve mapping workflow variables to the input parameters expected by the sub-workflow.

Test Results Tab

This tab allows you to test the sub-workflow independently of the main workflow to ensure it behaves as expected.

  • Testing the Sub-Workflow:

    • Execute the test by providing the necessary input parameters and clicking the test button.

    • The output and any actions taken by the sub-workflow during the test will be displayed here.

  • Results Interpretation:

    • The output will be presented in a JSON format, indicating what data will be passed back to the main workflow.

    • The actions performed during the test, if any, are also listed here, allowing you to verify that the sub-workflow executes as intended.

Settings Tab

Adjust settings that control how the sub-workflow integrates with the main workflow.

  • Timeout After:

    • Specify a timeout duration for the sub-workflow execution. (same as rule timeout)
