Navigate LoopEdge Flows

Before taking the initial steps to create a device data Flow, orient yourself to the LoopFlow features.

To start navigating LoopFlows

  1. In the navigation panel, select Flows.
  2. In the Flows window, click Go to LoopFlows.

    You will use this blank canvas to wire together devices, simply by dragging and dropping nodes from the palette onto the canvas and then connecting them.


    • Scroll through the palette, especially to view the DataHub Publish and DataHub Subscribe nodes.
    • Hover your mouse over a node to read the tooltip description.

Create a Simple Flow

At a minimum, a simple Flow consists of an input (Inject node), an output (Debug node), and a wire between them. View the following video (no audio) to get an idea of how to configure a basic Flow.
