Real-time flows

An integration flow consists of multiple integration steps, each of which is running as an individual Docker container. These containers are linked with each other through messaging queues so that they can exchange data.

The integration flows can be grouped into two types:

  • ordinary flows are used for background synchronization of data. The majority of Flows are ordinary and this is the default type when you are building a new flow.

  • real-time flows are used if a request must be responded in real-time without any delays for example, when an end user interacts with a chatbot.
