Design Pane

Connect iPaaS is all about creating integration workflows. To help users create these integration workflows, it provides a Design Pane. This Design Panel consists of a palette of ecosystems from which you can choose to either trigger or finish your integration workflow. When you first see the design pane, you can click on any of the ecosystems as shown in Figure 1-A to jumpstart a new integration workflow.

After you have configured a trigger in your workflow from the Design Pane, you can click on the same or a different ecosystem as shown in Figure 1-B to set up an action in the workflow.

What would you like to build today?

Since there are too many ecosystems in the Design Pane, sometime you may not be able to find the ecosystem of your choice. If this is the case, you can simply start typing the name of the ecosystem into the search text box underneath the "What would you like to build?" and it will display your desired ecosystem, filtering out the unwanted ecosystems.

Filter Ecosystems

The images below show how you can filter an ecosystem using the search text box. This kind of filtering can be done for both triggers and actions as shown in Figures 2-A and 2-B.

Designing a Flow

To create an integration workflow in the design pane, you can start by selecting the ecosystem from the palette. You will then be prompted to choose a Flow Name and Description, as shown below in Figure 2-C.

Here, we just use a simple name but for your business workflows, it is best to have a meaningful name and description of the workflow. To learn more about creating a flow, see Start Creating the Workflow.
