Automation Editor

The editor has a visual UI that works just like any other automation tool out there, but with extra power focused on helping you build integrations on your platform.

APIs page

This is where you would add any 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

Design page

This is where the magic happens - the build. You build your integration using an automation based visual UI. Call APIs, add conditions, lop 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.

Webhooks page

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.

Connections page

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.

Constants page

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.

Monitor page

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.

View detailed breakdown for each of the pages by visiting the Interface section of the documentation.
