IntegrationHub week is still going strong! The last two new Paris related features I will highlight on the blog will be the Payload Builder API and the JSON Parser action step. JSON Parser Building and extending spokes is one of my current favorite things to develop. One of the most common parts of integration is handling the response. Introduced in the New York release was the XML Parser step. With the Paris release, the other main format, JSON, is handled with the JSON parser step.

I’ve got three more Flow Designer enhancements to make your lives a bit easier. They are: Action instance ordering Ghost actions Duplicate action instance Action instance ordering The first is pretty straight forward. Prior to Paris, action numbering was “outline based”. Every time you added a new if, for each, or other action that created an indent level, a decimal was added on to your action numbers. While this may seem innocuous at first, it could make inline scripting challenging when referencing action 3.

Flow Designer received many new features and enhancements in the Paris release, and I’m going to focus on the intersection of Flow Designer and Service Catalog for this post. Flow Designer is an important component in automating the process behind Service Catalog requests, and every release brings a tighter integration and additional support for the catalog in Flow Designer. Submit Catalog Item Request action The first enhancement is a new action that ships with Paris called Submit Catalog Item Request.
