Synatic boasts an Operations Portal that can be used on a day-to-day basis to monitor and ensure that all flows and integrations are working. The Operations Portal also has the added ability to execute flows and investigate any anomalies that may occur with any flow.

A typical example of real-life usage would be monitoring and ensuring that all flows and integrations, like automatic synchronizations, data updates, financial data updates, etc., are working.

Any errors or malfunctions, for whatever reason, can be checked, tested, corrected, and retested on the fly.

About this Tutorial

This tutorial will guide you through using the Operations Portal and how to create a series of views, each with a different control type.

For this tutorial, we will mostly use the BookStore Solution as an example to create views of Flows, Buffers, Runs, HTML, and Graphs.

Watch the video below to learn how to create a Synatic Operations Portal.

Creating a Portal

To begin, you must first create a new Operations Portal, if you have not done so already. In Synatic, go to the Operations Portal menu and click ⨁ to add a new Portal.

  1. Give the new Portal a name and a meaningful description.

  2. Click Save.

πŸ“ You can select the Disable checkbox if you want to disable this portal at any future time.
