Define a flow

Click Flows on the top toolbar to open the Flows / Monitoring page.

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 getting started topic.

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 (* denotes mandatory):
    • Name: Enter a user friendly name, for example Simple flow
    • Identifier: Enter the id that will be used in the transfer commands, for example flow01 (Transfer CFT IDF)
  2. In the left panel, 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. You cannot define a protocol until you have defined both the source and target.
  5. Save the flow, or save and deploy the flow.
