Tutorial: Referencing remote repository data in a data flow

Configure a decision strategy and add it to the data flow to analyze the ingested data. For more information, see Strategy rules - Completing the New, Save As, or Specialization form.
You can add other elements to your data flow to analyze and process the ingested data as needed. For example, you can add a Filter element to extract only the data for a specific customer type, or combine the ingested data with another data set by adding a Compose element. For more information, see Creating a data flow.
