Creating flows with multiple actions
As the BMC Integration Studio administrator or end user, you can create flows with multiple actions. Such flows include a trigger and a series of actions that occur due to this trigger. Instead of creating separate flows for different purposes, you can create a single flow with multiple actions and receive a chain of results after a single flow run.
For example, you can create the following flow: if a new ticket is created in Atlassian JIRA (trigger), create the same ticket in Remedy ITSM (action 1), update the Atlassian JIRA issue with the Remedy ITSM incident number (action 2), and then send an email notification with information from both JIRA issue and Remedy incident (action 3).
Example: Multiple-action flow for simple tasks
The following illustration shows an example of a flow with simple logic, where the actions in Connector 2 and Connector 3 occur sequentially after a triggering event in Connector 1:
As the result of such a flow run, you receive the same notifications in Slack and Gmail about the triggering event in Salesforce.
Example: Multiple-action flow for complex tasks
The following illustration shows an example of a flow with complex logic:
As the result of such a flow run, you receive the following notifications:
- Notification in Slack about Salesforce user profile change.
- Notification in Gmail that includes Salesforce user profile change information and the title of the Slack channel where the first notification is located.
You can create simple or complex flows with multiple actions by mapping the corresponding fields according to your needs.
