Dataflow Steps - Multi Step Dataflows


Dataflow Steps - Multi Step Dataflows

Did you know you can create a multi-step dataflow in expressor Studio?


Use additional steps when:


  • you want to break apart dataflows into smaller digestible tasks
  • you want to add additional orchestration or coordination to a dataflow, such as file and database management
  • you want to control order of execution
  • dataflows have or require dependencies on other dataflows or data sources, such as refreshing Lookup tables
  • when debugging to test one part of a dataflow
  • You can also rearrange and enable or disable steps when developing.

Here is the sequence:


  • Select the Add Step button from the Steps section of the Dataflow Build tab on the ribbon bar.
  • A new Step tab is added beneath the Dataflow panel.
  • Right click the tab to rename, delete, enable or disable or use the buttons on the ribbon tool bar above.
  • Click on the tab name and hold to drag into desired sequence.
