When an Integration is active the connectors execute functions to perform API calls and pass on data. Every time such an action is perfomed we count as an Execution. Example: You connect your own solution with a CRM in an easy flow that fetches new contacts (trigger) from the CRM and creates a new contact in your solution (action). This gives you a flow with two nodes, so two Executions whenever there is data to be processed. If the trigger is a polling trigger, it will call the CRM’s API say every 5 minutes. This means 12 Executions per hour - even if there is no data. Using webhooks or changing the polling intervals allows you to greatly reduce the number of executions. The configuration options will heavily depend on the API of each system as well as the type of business logic you would like to implement.
The steps necessary to let data flow from one application to another are defined in what we call Integration Flows. You will create a general description of such Integration Flows and make them available for all your users to activate via the Integration Center or custom integration to your interface. These pre-defined and re-usable descriptions of Integration Flows are Templates.
Yes. The Integration Center is one way to get you started quickly and without much need for development. If you prefer to bring the Templates your users in a different way, for instance within your application settings or in combination with already existing integrations, you can access our API for a custom implementation. To discuss more technical details, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us directly.
No. You can use as many connectors as you want.
An easy first step is to use generic components, such as our REST Component, to connect to your own API. When you are ready to move to your own connector, you can either build one yourself based on the open source guidelines, automatically generate one using a valid OpenAPI 3 API spec or reach out to us.
Your account is free by default, so you can test the platform. You only need to sign-up for a commercial plan once you want to implement the Integration Center and grant your customers access to the integrations.
