To create a new Action, click on the “+” sign on the top right in the Action Configuration view within an Edge Server:
A new Action Card will appear. It contains the Action Name (probably “Action x” where x is a number) plus the Action ID, a hexadecimal string. The Action ID can be used for example to trigger the Action via API.
Double Clicking on that Action Card will open the steps editor:
Actions consist of so called “Steps” (also known as “Action Components”) which can be lined up from left to right in the sequence they are being executed.
To add new Steps, simply click on the “+” icon on the top right and choose a new Step from the “Action Component Library”. We are constantly extending the Action Component Library with new Components.
After selecting a component, you will see the following view where you can configure the Step and access or process its variables:
You can find more detailed descriptions about each component under Action Components.
