Control Start and Shut Down of Data Workflows

SAP Data Hub provides the operators Workflow Trigger and Workflow Terminator to control the start of a data workflow execution and to shut down the execution respectively.

Use these operators with other data workflow operators only.



Workflow Trigger

The Workflow Trigger operator sends a start message, which you can use to start a data workflow. This operator has one output port. Once started, the operator sends a message on its output port. If the output port is connected, the next data workflow operator starts its execution. But, if the output port is unconnected, the data workflow execution fails.

Workflow Terminator

The Workflow Terminator operator helps shut down the data workflow execution. it shuts down the data workflow. The data workflow terminates with the state, Completed.
