Manage the Workspace
1. What You Will Learn
After finishing this guide you will understand the usage of workspaces and how to handle them.
2. What is a Workspace?
A workspace acts as a permanent value storage which accumulates values while executing single commands. After first opening the app, you will have the ‘Default Workspace’ selected by default, this workspace cannot be deleted.
3. Manage Workspaces
The following chapter will explain how to manage workspaces.
3.1. Create new Workspace
To create a new workspace select the (1) create button on the right-hand side of the dropdown, simply put the name in the text field and click (2) ‘Add’. This will automatically create and open the new workspace.
Please note that there is no need to create a new Workspace.
The Workflow Executor App will work perfectly fine just by using the ‘Default Workspace’!
3.2. Delete a Workspace
First select the workspace which should be deleted.
Then click on the ‘Trashcan’ button which will delete the currently selected workspace.
4. Workspaces and Single Commands
|For this chapter the Workflow executor app has to be in the ‘expert mode’. How to toggle this mode can be found here.|
As mentioned above, a workspace acts as an value storage for run single commands. More clear information about single command and how to run them can be found here.
4.1. Select a Single Command
Select a command as shown here:
As you can see once a single command is selected the ‘Workspace Datastore’ will be active. This datastore holds the values of previously run single command, right now it is empty because no command has been run before.
4.2. Run the Single Command
Now insert some example values:
After doing so, run the command:
As you can see the output values, which the command provides, will be listed in the ‘Workspace Datastore’. These values can later be reused in other commands, more about that here.
|The values of the ‘Workspace Datastore’ are linked to the currently used workspace. Switching workspaces will cause a change of available values in the ‘Workspace Datastore’!|
