What is Dataflow Automation?
Dataflow Automation provides organizations Big Data capabilities including long term storage, data management, processing and integration without having to invest millions of dollars and a dedicated team.
What are Dataflow Connections?
In general, a Dataflow Connection stores some information that is used to communicate with the actions that exist in your Dataflows. Connections may be used by more than one Dataflow within your account.
There are several types of connections supported by Zerion Dataflows such as Email, PDF Reports, iFormBuilder, SQL Server, WebMerge and Zoho Reports.
What are connection dependencies?
Connections can be used in multiple Dataflows in your account. Connection dependencies will show each Dataflow where your connection is being used.
How do I see connection dependencies in Dataflow?
To see which Dataflows are using a particular connection, please follow the instructions below.
STEP 1. From inside the Dataflow Automation interface, select Connections.
STEP 2. Click on the connection for which you want to see the dependencies.
STEP 3. Select the Dependencies tab.
You will see the dependencies for the connection.
It provides the following information:
- Dataflow Name: These are the Dataflows that use the connection.
- Occurrences: This is how many times a connection is used within a Dataflow.
- Action Name(s): These are the actions within a Dataflow that are using the connections.
