Subflows is a dynamic library that contains Subflow components which are automatically created when a flow is tagged
These components can be dragged into a flow and optionally configured by the property dialog. The subflow is then embedded in this flow and can be linked with other components.
Create a Subflow Component
Before creating at least one subflow component, the library will be empty. Creating a subflow is recommend if a routine
is often used or a flow is getting too complex. The
ProcessShipmentPickup flow of the preinstalled
Warehouse App is an example of a subflow:
Besides the functionality a subflow can contain subflow connectors, which can be found in
Those can be defined as: inputs, outputs, references.
ProcessShipmentPickup flow contains two memory references. One for the shipments which are waiting to be picked up and
one the shipments which are going to be delivered. It also contains one input connector for the incoming message:
The functionality of the flow is simple and removes the order from the input message from the first memory and adds
it to the second one. To enable the subflow and use it in other flows it needs to be tagged with
Then it can be found in the dynamic subflow library:
