Understanding Directual Scenarios

Unleash the power of back-end logic 🚀

Directual scenarios are a crucial component of your application's back-end logic. Scenarios manage and process data based on specified criteria.

Directual scenarios process objects in a target data structure. You can select the target data structure when configuring the START step:

Types of triggers

Directual scenarios offer two primary types of triggers:

  • Real-time, event-based (as a reaction to an event): These scenarios respond to specific events, such as user actions or changes in the application's data. For instance, a scenario can be triggered when a user submits a form.

  • Scheduled: Scheduled scenarios run at predefined times or intervals, providing you with the ability to automate tasks. For example, you can schedule a scenario to execute every Monday at 4:40 p.m. GMT.

Additional trigger options:

  • Calling scenarios from within scenarios: You can execute one scenario from another using the Link scenario step, creating complex workflows by chaining scenarios together

  • Synchronous scenarios: These scenarios respond to synchronous POST requests and process incoming data, returning it as an API response

Note that a single scenario has the capability to incorporate all available trigger types!
