FAQs

Components support by ovaledge 

  1. What are the types of Jobs OvalEdge supports for DellBoomi?
  • Process: Processes are the central components in Boomi Integration. They contain a series of shapes that determine how data is executed within the system. A process typically represents a discrete workflow that moves a given type of record from one application to another.
  • Connectoraction: Connector actions are used to get data into and send data out of a process. Most processes have one "get" connector and one or more "send" connectors. The Connector action uses a combination of predefined connection and operation components to establish where and how to get or send data.
  • Maps: Data is transformed from one format (profile) to another using Maps.
  • Businessrules: Use the Business Rules to work with the profile structure of a document in order to check multiple business rules to determine if a document should be accepted or rejected.
