A Flow represents the data Delivery pipeline or process of rendering data to customers. Since customers
may have varying Delivery specifications, you must configure the DOC environment such that data
Delivery is aligned with customer requirements. In brief, when you create a Flow, you configure a data
Delivery for a Collection (group of Sources/Extractors) within a designated timeframe. A Flow allows you
to run numerous Sources simultaneously in a scheduled window.


  • A Flow belongs to a Project and, in this case, is the child of a Project.

  • A Flow requires a Collection, which extends itself to a necessary Schema.

Flow Types

There are three Flow types:
