Create a scheme

Contributors

You must create a scheme when data has to be cached from a new data source type or when data has to be stored by workflows directly in the database.

What you’ll need

  • You must have installed WFA.

  • You must have administrator privileges or architect credentials for WFA.

About this task

By default, WFA supports two types of schemes: Data Source Acquisition and Other.

  • Data Source Acquisition schemes: The tables in these schemes are cached by data sources defined to acquire data from remote systems.

  • Other schemes: The tables in these schemes are populated with data through workflows that are customized to solve specific problems.

Steps
  1. Log in to WFA through a web browser as an administrator or architect.

  2. Click Data Source Design > Schemes.

  3. Create a new scheme by clicking New icon on the toolbar.

  4. Enter the required information such as the name, type, description, and entity version of the scheme in the New Schemes dialog box.

  5. Click Save.
