Aggregator

An aggregator is a type of module that merges multiple bundles into one single bundle.

Action

An action is a type of module that allows you to read or write bundles from or into a selected service. It is the most common, most general type of module.

App

An app represents a service or application. It consists of several modules.

Filter

Applying a filter to a specific route allows you to select bundles that meet specific criteria. For every filter, you can define any number of filter conditions. For more information please see the Filtering help guide.

ID

ID is a name that is used to uniquely identify a bundle. Integromat usually uses the bundle ID for identification of a bundle that is to be updated or deleted from a given service.

Cycle

A cycle refers to the entire run of a scenario that begins with the initialization phase and ends with the finalization phase. For more information please read the Transactions help guide.

Module

A module is a part of an app. It represents a task to be performed by Integromat. For more information please read the Types of modules help guide.

Operation

An operation is a task performed by a module. For more information please read the Counting the number of operations help guide.

Iterator

An Iterator is a type of module that allows you to divide arrays into separate bundles.

Item

An item is a part of a bundle. Every bundle contains several items. A Facebook post, for example, contains the following items: author, content, date created, date updated and the like.

Router

A router allows you to add a new route to a scenario. For more information please read the Router and scenarios with multiple modules help guide.

Scenario

A scenario is a scheme defining the way in which the individual services shall communicate and work with each other. For more information please read the Creating a scenario help guide.

Service

Service is a collective term for a source of bundles. Each service is represented in Integromat by an app. A service may include a web API, web page, different types of servers (FTP, SMTP, IMAP) and the like.

Connection

Most apps require you to create a connection between Integromat and your account with a given service. For more information please read the Connecting to services help guide.

Trigger

A trigger is a type of module that is always placed at the start of a scenario. It returns bundles that were added or updated since the last scenario run (according to settings).

Transaction

Integromat uses transaction processing to execute a scenario. A transaction consists of several phases during which data is transformed from one consistent state into another consistent state.

Webhook

A Webhook is a special type of trigger that allows you to run a scenario immediately after a new bundle is available. For more information please read the Types of modules help guide.

Bundle

A bundle is a basic unit returned or received by modules. Each bundle represents a different thing for each app. Examples include posts from Facebook, photos and videos from Instagram or tweets from Twitter.
