Loader Workflow Guidelines

Adhere to these guidelines for a consistent loader experience:

  • Align workflow elements to improve readability.
  • Group similar elements, like credentials.
  • Check input values for expected patterns, like URLs that contain "http://".
  • Use the Input Data tool to connect to the database rather than the Dynamic Input tool to ensure a consistent toolset experience when working with the metadata loaders.
  • Create wireless connections from input parameters like credentials, to improve legibility.
  • Verify that every loader has sample data to show full capabilities of the connector, including the UI elements to display in Connect.
  • Each workflow is in a separate sub-directory that contains the workflow and the related sample data.
