flowground for Business Customers

Flows

With the Flow Creator you can intuitively create, modify or combine integration flows with existing flows without in-depth programming knowledge. The connectors ensure smooth bidirectional data exchange between the connected applications. If you create workspaces in a project room, development teams can work independently on different flows – in logically separated, secure environments.

flowground: Explanation Flows
  • Import flow templates from the flow catalog and reuse them directly with your own credentials
  • Export created flows to the flow catalog for distribution to the project team or public as a flow template
  • Create your own flows with the Flow Creator in the project room
  • Adapt imported flow templates to create your own flow

Data transfer in the flow

Using integration flows, business processes can be efficiently automated. Find out in detail how data transfer works in the flowground platform here:

Reliable data transport, flexibly scalable

The interaction of Docker containers and message queues ensures the reliable running of your flows.

In a queue, data is never lost, even if Docker containers crash.

You may scale all containers, in order to run processes in parallel.

flowground Reliability data transfer


If a target-API is temporarily unavailable, the queue reliably ensures later data transfer.

Developer Edition Step 3

3. Select the Developer-Edition in the dashboard

After registration, the Developer-Edition will be provided to you via the TelekomCLOUD portal. You can find it in the dashboard under: My Cloud > My Products. There you can book your flowground project room in the Developer-Edition for free and use it immediately.

*The Developer-Edition offers no opportunity for productive use/deployment nor any upgrade options to a productive edition. If you need this option, just use the 3-month Trial-Edition.
With the flowground Developer-Edition, we provide you with a fully functional edition free of charge for an unlimited period of time. With this edition you can load connectors from the Connector Catalog, and customise and create your own connectors, as well as build flows. The Developer-Edition does not allow productive use of the flows, as they are stopped regularly. The flowground editions, which are subject to a fee, are available for productive use. If you no longer want to use the Developer-Edition, you do not have to do anything. For the final deletion of your account, please contact customer service by phone.

How a flow works between OTRS and Jira

How is data transferred between two connectors? Find out more by clicking on the magenta coloured circles in the exemplary flow between the ticketing systems OTRS and Jira below. Both applications are used, for example, in IT support to document and process incident messages or service requests.

With a few more flows, a comprehensive and complete integration of the two ticketing systems is created. This makes it much easier to work in different teams. Discover the benefits of data integration for your business – with flowground, the data integration solution of Deutsche Telekom.
