The primary build page for Pathfix Automation is the automation editor (called Design). You will add, build, edit and modify your API integrations from the Automation Design editor. The editor has a visual UI that works just like any other automation tool, but with a focus on helping you automate API integrations on your platform.
The top naviation bar for Pathfix Automation can be accessed on any page. These open in an easy to use popup that does not take you away from the page you are on, making sure you never break your build momentum.
This is where you would add any custom/provider APIs that you want to consume. There are a few pre-built APIs available but we understand that not all APIs for all providers can be added, which makes this the best starting point for building your automation
This is where the magic happens - the build. You build your integration using an automation based visual UI. Call APIs, add conditions, loop through a list, send a response - all of it happens here. Apart from build, you can also export or import an automation that has been built and shared by someone else.
Pathfix Automation comes with webhooks already set up. Click on the webhooks tab and select Create. Once you have set it up, the webhooks start listening to any events being triggered for your connected users.
Want to work with your own softwares for internal use? Click on the Connections tab and connect your account. Once connected, build your automation, just for you.
When building an integration, you would have keys or IDs that you are constantly referring to in multiple automations. This is where Constants come in. Add those keys one-time in Constants and simply point to them whenever you need them. Need to change a Constant? Simple edit the Constant and all the referencing automations will automatically pick this up.
Additionally, you can now add Constants for seprate environments within your application (e.g. staging, development, live, internal etc.).
Monitor the status of your automation tasks by clicking on Monitor in the toolbar. You can view details of the call including time of call, status (success or failure) and details of each tasks run in a simple to use JSON format.
Switch between your Dev and Live environments to view automations that are currently in development or in live. You will always start in the Dev space where you will be able to create, configure and make changes before you move an automation to Live.
