- Test Mode:
When the setting is turned on, the workflow is in Test Mode. Use it when developing, editing, and troubleshooting the workflow to ensure it does not process actual instances for the client’s data of record. See Edit Workflow Details.
Number of events (steps) that can be processed during a time interval. Use when the workflow contains APIs that may have rate limits. For example, a complex API may run through workflow instances too quickly to ensure accuracy. In this case, set the Throttle lower to a few simultaneous instances, not an entire array.
The trigger defines how data is collected from a source app then the conditions that initiate the workflow instance. See Workflow.
- Trigger Application:
Source application where the workflow gets the data. See Edit Workflow Details.
- Trigger Interval:
The amount of time between each polling or timing trigger (See Trigger Mechanism.)
- Trigger Log:
- Trigger Mechanism: A workflow can be started with one of the following trigger mechanisms, or types.
Manual: A user or another workflow (an external action) initiates a workflow instance.
Polling: The platform regularly requests new records from the endpoint. The trigger kicks off a workflow instance based on the newly found records.
Timing: A new workflow instance starts at a scheduled date and time.
