Router and scenarios with multiple modules
Each scenario can contain an unlimited number of modules. This gives you the possibility to create complex schemes. A router allows you to duplicate data or add new routes to a scenario. In each route, you can then handle different groups of bundles separately.
Example: Connecting Instagram to Dropbox and YouTube
The below scenario shows how to:
- Download images from Instagram, resize them and upload them to a selected Dropbox folder
- At the same time, download videos from Instagram and upload them to YouTube
Instagram can return both images and videos. Adding a router will allow you to divide the scenario and add a new route so that each type of bundle can be processed separately, at the same time.
Adding a router to a scenario
A router can be added to a scenario in one of the following ways:
- Click on the right handle of the module where the router shall be inserted and from the list of options that appear, choose "Router"
- Click the wrench icon below a line connecting the modules in which you want to add a router to and from the panel that appears, select "Add a router"
- Click the left handle of a separate module and drag it towards a module, which on both sides is connected to other modules. This will insert a router right after the connected module and connect the separate module to the scenario
To select the bundles that will pass through to a specific route of a scenario, define a filter. For more information how to use filters, please refer to the Help Filtering.
