Define an Event Trigger
To start any Workflow you need to define the event trigger for the nodes of the ecosystems such as Object Created, Object Updated, or Object Deleted that initiates the flow. Connect iPaaS platform provides three types of event triggers:
Real-Time - Process events of interest in near real-time as and when they happen.
Polling - Check for the event of interest periodically at the selected interval and process them as individual records.
Bulk Data Feed - Check for the events of interest periodically at the selected interval and process them as a file.
See trigger section to learn more about event trigger on Connect iPaaS.
Set Up Connection¶
A connection is required to perform the desired trigger or action operation. Connect iPaaS supports multiple ways of authentication based on the ecosystem selected.
See the connections section to learn more about different types of connections on Connect iPaaS.
Add Event Filter¶
Connect iPaaS enables you to select specific events and filter out the rest using certain attributes of the incoming trigger event. This ability allows selective processing of the events of interest.
You can set any kind of operation against the selected field or attribute of the entity based on the datatype of these attributes. For example, if you select the 'First Name' which is a type of string, you will be able to perform Contains, Does not contain, Starts with, Ends with, Equals, Does not equal, Exists, and Does not Exist operations into it.
