Create a flow

Click Flows on the top toolbar to open the Flowspage.

The following outlines tasks for defining a flow. Optional steps, such as defining source and target properties, have default values in the user interface and are not described in this introductory section.

Note You cannot modify the Protocol until you have defined both the Source and Target.

In the Flow List page click Add flow and perform the following steps:

  1. Select General information and complete the fields. The following fields are mandatory:
    • Name: Enter a user friendly name in our example Simple flow
    • Identifier: Enter the id that will be used in the transfer commands flow01 (Transfer CFT IDF)
  2. Select Source and click Edit. The source is the owner of the data being transferred.
  3. Select Target and click Edit. The target is the receiver of the exchange.
  4. Optionally, select Protocol and define.
  5. Save the flow, or save and deploy the flow.
Tip   You can refer to the Transfer CFT to Central Governance parameter mapping Flow definition: Target and Flow definition: Source to further customize your flow.
