Configuring the DataFlow-Execute method for a data flow with abstract input and output (single-case execution)
You can automate data management operations for a data flow with abstract input and output by using the DataFlow-Execute method. You can perform these operations programmatically, instead of doing them manually.
Create an activity rule from the navigation panel, by clicking DataFlow-Execute method., to start theFor more information, see Creating an activity.

- Data Flows landing page
This landing page provides facilities for managing data flows in your application. Data flows allow you to sequence and combine data based on various sources, and write the results to a destination. Data flow runs that are initiated through this landing page run in the access group context. They always use the checked-in instance of the Data Flow rule and the referenced rules.
- Types of data flows
Data flows are scalable data pipelines that you can build to sequence and combine data based on various data sources. Each data flow consists of components that transform data and enrich data processing with business rules.
- Methods and instructions by function
- DataFlow-Execute method
Apply the DataFlow-Execute method to perform data management operations on records from the data flow main input. By using the DataFlow-Execute method, you can automate these operations and perform them programmatically instead of doing them manually. For example, you can configure an activity to start a data flow at a specified time.
