Automating Creation of Flows?

  • 1.  Automating Creation of Flows?

    Posted Fri December 18, 2020 06:09 PM

    Hi All,

    We are evaluating using the LSF scheduler within our organisation. One question remains unanwered - is it possible to create flows with scripting. I understand that the creation of flows is performed for the Flow Editor. Since out flows have a dynamic character we would like to automate this creation/update process. Is this possible within the suite?

    any help vert welcome!

    regards,

    Richard

    Hi Richard,
     
    Notice still it's needed to use flow editor to create the flow and then save to an xml or just submit, then use jsub/jtrigger to submit/trigger the flow to run.
    If there's dynamical structure, usually we can do it with setting a variable and specify it when triggering the flow with "jtrigger -v".
    Hope this helpful.

    The short answer is yes.  You simply need to know the correct syntax.  I would be nice if we could support YAML more longer term though.  Personally, I don't like XML, but use it where I have to.
