Pipeline dashboard

The Pipeline dashboard uses simple drag and drop features to build pipelines. After adding a REST or SOAP endpoint or an event stream, you are presented with a default pipeline from where you can start adding data source units and other types of units.

The dependencies of the units determine the layout of the pipeline.

Default dashboard

Depending on the type of pipeline you are creating (for example, REST, SOAP, event stream), you are provided with a default pipeline with which to build your pipeline.

The following screenshot shows the default dashboard after creating a REST endpoint called /getDriverbyVehicle/{vehicle_id}:

Adding units to the pipeline

To add a data source unit or a flow unit to the pipeline, you drag a line to the right from the source unit. This causes a Connection indicator (a + sign over a gray bar) to appear. Then release the mouse over the + sign.

drag and drop a line to add a unit to the pipeline

To add a unit between two existing units on the pipeline, you skip over the Connection bar and release the mouse button on the target unit.

A Select unit to place pane appears. From this pane, you select a data source or flow unit to add. From the list of units, click a data source or flow unit to add it to the pipeline.

Select unit to place (notice the lock and shared indicators)

A lock icon next to a data source unit indicates it uses Authentication. A Secure Store unit will be added to the pipeline as well. Notice also the project name under two data source units. They indicate these units are shared within the organization.

This adds the unit to the pipeline and it also creates a connection between the two unit.

Connection between units made

You then use the Mapping dashboard to create a mapping between attributes and parameters.
