How to manage connectivity

Once you've scheduled or run a workflow you can modify its configuration at any time. The configuration that can be modified may vary by workflow but the general steps remain consistent.

Modify connectivity

To modify the configuration of an existing workflow, complete the following steps.

  1. On the left of any screen, navigate to Workflow.
  2. Under Monitor select an existing workflow tile. (You may need to expand the run history or filter first.)
  3. From the Workflow Run History table, click on the previous run of the workflow you want to modify.
  4. In the upper left of the screen, change to the Config tab.
  5. Modify the parts of the workflow configuration you require:
    • Under <Connector> Credential, use the Edit Credentials button to change the credentials for the source.
    • Under Connection settings, use the Edit button to change the connection details:
      • Modify whether or not querying or data previews are allowed for the source.
      • Modify the query row limit to enable exporting large query results via email.
      • Modify the query timeout limit β€” expandable up to 60 minutes.
    • Under Connection Admins, click the pencil icon to add or remove connection admins.
      🚨 Careful! If you do not specify any user or group, nobody will be able to manage the connection β€” not even admins.
    • Under Metadata, use the selectors to modify which metadata to include and exclude.
  6. Once you've made your updates, click the Update button to save the changes.
    • You can optionally run the workflow with the new configuration immediately.
    • You will need to confirm your changes by clicking the Yes button. Note that some workflow changes may take a few minutes to come into effect.

That's it β€” next time you run the workflow, or it runs on its schedule, it will use your changes! πŸŽ‰

🚨 Careful! If you modify the Metadata portion, any previously crawled metadata that is now excluded will be archived on the next workflow run.
