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:

  1. Download images from Instagram, resize them and upload them to a selected Dropbox folder
  2. 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:

  1. Click on the right handle of the module where the router shall be inserted and from the list of options that appear, choose "Router"
  2. 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"
  3. 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

Filtering

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.
