To test run a process in a flow, click the blue play ▶ button where it is available on the flow canvas.

📝 This option lets you test the flow up to that point on the flow.

Synatic - Test Play Button

The settings in the Run Test dialog can be used to control the test run of the flow process.


Test Options

Synatic - Run Test settings

The two options at the top of the dialog are used to start the test and also to reset the settings to a default state:

  • Test
    Click the Test option to start a run test. You can select one of the options below before you start the test.

  • Reset Defaults
    Click the Reset Defaults option to reset any option selections you make back to default.


Test Settings

The test settings can be used to apply alternate operations to the test process.

This option is deselected by default. You select this option to override and ignore any data that resides in the Source step with data that you can provide in the Test Input or Capture Source Text panels.

  • Test Input - You can upload a JSON, XML, or text file for use in the process.

  • Capture Source Text - You can manually enter any source data in the applicable format.

This option has been deprecated at the time of writing.

This option is selected by default and stops the process immediately on any error encountered and immediately displays the error details.

  • You may alternatively deselect this option to complete the full run and view a collated list of all errors at the end of the run.

This option is selected by default and forces the test run to output to a log file instead of executing a destination step process.

  • This is recommended when testing or debugging your flow so as not to execute, overwrite or update any data in the destination step.

  • Deselect this option to let the flow process the destination step, such as creating a file or sending an email.

This option is deselected by default.

  • This option is mainly associated with Synatics' buffers and is the only schema that Synatic can change.
    📝 This change is permanent.

  • Select this option to analyze the incoming data from the data source and recalculate or regenerate the structure of the associated buffer schema. The schema in this case will be based on this test run.
