BLOCKS Reference

Block Reference

Basic

Start of Flow

This BLOCK indicates the start of a Flow.

These BLOCKS are used in conjunction with "End of Flow" BLOCKS. Flows are groups of contiguous BLOCKS, and are executable when they are contained between a set of "Start of Flow" and "End of Flow" BLOCKS.

Property name Explanation
ID

This is only displayed when an ID is set up. An ID is a name associated with a Flow. IDs are used when calling a Flow from an external application.

When you click the pencil button, you can change IDs in Flow lists.

IDs are defined in Flow lists. In principle, IDs adhere to the following rules.

  • IDs may use roman letters (a-z, A-Z, 0-9), hyphens (-), and underscores (_).
  • IDs may contain up to 64 characters.
BLOCK name Configure the name displayed on this BLOCK.
Auto-execution schedule

Set a schedule for the Flow to execute automatically.

Select “Simplified input” or “Cron input” to configure this schedule.

  • Simplified input

    Use a visual interface to easily set an auto-execution schedule. Select "Cron input" to directly input a more detailed schedule.

    • Repeats: Select how to repeat the schedule.
      • Daily: Set the Flow to execute on a daily schedule. You can configure for it to repeat after a certain number of days.
      • Weekly: Set the Flow to execute weekly. You can configure which days of the week the Flow will execute on.
      • Weekdays (M–F): Set the Flow to execute only on weekdays. These are set as Monday through Friday by default, but can be reconfigured.
      • Monthly on day 1: Set the Flow to execute on the first of each month.
      • Monthly: Set the Flow to execute on a monthly schedule. You can configure the day of the month, hour, and minute. You can also configure the number of months between executions (every 2 months or every 3 months, etc.)
    • Repeat every: Select the period between executions for daily or monthly repetition schedules.
      • For daily schedules, select the number of days between executions.
      • For monthly schedules, select the number of months between executions. You can also select which day of the month it will execute on.
    • Day: Select which days weekly or weekday schedules will execute.
    • Hour/Minute: Select the hour and minute the Flow should execute.
  • Cron input

    Enter the auto-execution schedule directly using crontab format (something like 10 0 * * 1). It is possible to make more detailed schedules using this method compared to the simplified input.

    The crontab format is the same as that used in Unix based operating systems.

    Starting from the left, set values for “minute”, “hour”, “day”, “month”, and “day of the week”, with a space between each. Each field can be set with the following values:

    • Minute: 059
    • Hour: 023
    • Day131
    • Month112
    • Day of the week:07
      0(Sun) / 1(Mon) / 2(Tue) / 3(Wed) / 4(Thu) / 5(Fri) / 6(Sat) / 7(Sun)

    Each field can also be set as an asterisk (*) to mean “every possible value”. For example, setting the “hour” field to * equates to “every hour”.

    Entering the command 10 0 * * 1 would cause the Flow to execute on Monday each week at 00:10 AM.

Activate auto-execution Enable or disable auto-execution for the Flow. By enabling this property and saving the Board, the Flow will auto-execute according to the schedule configured in the “Auto-execution schedule” property.
Success notices Choose the destination to which notices of successful Flow executions will be sent. Set your preferences in the "Notifications" section of "Board settings" prior to execution.
Failure notices Choose the destination to which notices of failed Flow executions will be sent. Set your preferences in the "Notifications" section of "Board settings" prior to execution.
BLOCK memos Make notes about this BLOCK.
Failure log history Select how many days logs of failed Flow executions will be saved.
Success log history Select how many days logs of successful Flow executions will be saved.
