There are a wide range of scheduling options that are made available to a Boomi application once it is deployed. Depending on the inbound connector used in the application, once deployed the process can run on a schedule or it can continuously poll some existing data source. How the process runs is dependent on if the inbound connector being a “Get” operation or a “Listen” operation.
A “Get” operation allows the process to get a set of inbound records from a data source. Upon deployment this process can either be triggered manually or can have a schedule set up so that it runs on set intervals, for example perhaps it is desired that the process runs every Tuesday and Thursday of every week.
A “Listen” operation allows a data source to be continuously polled and will retrieve data as it comes in. An…
While the Dell Boomi user interface is highly robust and user friendly there are times when using the user interface can prove to be quite tedious. One example that we have discovered to be an example of this are process deployments. In order to deploy a set of Boomi processes one must search for each individual process and deploy. This may not seem overly tedious if AtomSphere only has a few processes. But in some cases AtomSphere could have numerous applications each consisting of many processes. It is easy to see given the scenario how frequent deployments could prove to be very time consuming.
Luckily, there is an alternative to using the AtomSphere user interface. Dell Boomi offers a set of APIs (both REST and SOAP) that can be used for various sets of tasks and that includes deploying Boomi processes….
