Where to get started when planning how to design and use automated transactions. Covers the primary use cases as well as how to get started with configuration.

Introduction to Transactions

Automated Workflows are a vital tool in SCADA projects and Analytics Systems. They allow for the automated workflow management of a multitude of routine "behind the scenes" operations such as file transfers and reformatting, automating sequences as a closed control loop, and facilitating data dispatch to 3rd party systems as a centralized Information Broker.

Creating a Configuration

Covering the fundamentals of designing automated transactions, this video is the quick-start on what you need to know to build your first transaction.

Creating a Transaction

How to organize and structure transactions to be used in practical cases, and for projects that may scale up in complexity.

Using Transaction Activities

Some of the core transaction blocks that get used in almost every transaction, and how to use them to build branching and converging transactions.

Scheduling and Execution

Certain transactions will be triggered manually by users, but many others may need to be invoked automatically. Both approaches are supported and each offers its own benefits.

Defining Parameters for the Transaction

Parameterizing transactions is an important way to improve the reuse of transactions. It allows for a single template transaction to be applied to a variety of equipment or applications, all according to the specific supporting triggering events.

Using Conditional Branches

Conditional branch blocks are the primary "programmable logic" component of a transaction. They offer the standard expression editor with full access to all other data in the transaction.
