Add input and output fields to connector cards

This is an Early Access feature for existing Workflows users. To enable it, use the Early Access Feature Manager as described in Manage Early Access and Beta features.

In addition to options fields, use the Inputs and Outputs dialog to add inputs and outputs to your connector cards.

Input fields

Inputs are the fields on a card that accept data during the execution of a flow. For the card user, this is done by manually entering information into the fields or mapping outputs (by drag-and-drop) from other cards in a flow.

To add fields to a card, on a Connector Action card, click Add Inputs.

Field Definition Type
Group Name Multiple group names allow you to group fields in a logical or thematic order for better understanding by the card user.

Input fields that are dynamically imported from an application or project are required to be grouped under a single group name.

Text
Label Display name for the field and appears above the value on the card. Text
Field Type Specifies the type of input field on the action card. Options are Text Field or Dropdown. Dropdown

Output fields

Outputs fields are the draggable tiles you see on action cards that return data from a service to a flow. A user will drag these outputs from the connector into the inputs of other cards within a flow to exchange data.

To add output fields on a Return Outputs card, click Add Outputs.
