How to show triggered blend URL during template setup

When working with templates that run in triggered mode, a user won't always have access to the blend editor to see the URL for the triggered blend. This article will explain how this URL can be made available to the user during a blend's setup flow.

How to create templates: https://help.blendr.io/docs/how-to-create-integration-templates#setup-flow

Triggered blends: https://help.blendr.io/docs/calling-a-data-blend-via-a-webhook-url-rest-api-endpoint

 

Guide

  1. Make sure the Start block is using the 'triggered' run mode.
  2. Add a Setup block if the template doesn't already have one. This can be found in the left side menu under 'Start Blocks'.
  3. Add an Output block and connect it to the Setup block.
  4. In the configuration of the Output block write a message to display to the end-user that contains the {url} placeholder. On compilation of the blend, this placeholder will be resolved to the blend's trigger URL. More information about placeholders can be found here: https://help.blendr.io/docs/using-formulas-in-placeholders
