Now as you have your workflow and modelmeta file, you can simply open the workflow.
Figure 2. Opened workflow control panel.
|Here you see the name and the path of the opened workflow.
|Here you see the path of the by default opened modelmeta. It opens a modelmeta saved under the workflows directory and name by default.
|If you have the configuration setting:
Do a data flow analysis before starting engine? enabled, you will see the fields prefilled with values provided by the modelmeta datastore. To see optional fields you also have to enable the setting
Enable editing of optional values after workflow is opened?.
|You can clear all fields by pressing the
Clear (initial) data button.
|You can open another modelmeta via a file chooser by pressing the
Load Datastore (Optional) button. Alternatively you can also drag and drop a modelmeta into the executor window once a workflow is opened or drop a workflow together with a desired modelmeta into the executor.
You can open any modelmeta file even if they were not created together with the opened workflow. The executor then tries to fill in any fields that the datastore of the modelmeta provides.
Once a modelmeta is loaded, you should see the values of the file loaded into their matching field.
Any changes done to the values in the executor will not be saved to the modelmeta!
