What you will need

  • A running Central Governance system
  • Three started Transfer CFTs that are registered with Central Governance
  • Three files for exchanges. After creating the files, name them: SALES_report, DAILY_news, and INVENTORY
  • Appropriate rights in Central Governance for creating flows - refer to the Central Governance User's Guide for more information on user rights
  • Familiarize yourself with the two user interfaces as described in the Getting started overview


These exercises create the flow types shown in the diagram to the right.







Tip   Notice that the NAME of the flow in the Flow List is a user friendly name describing the flow, while the IDENTIFIER is the parameter (ID) that you will use in your transfer commands.
