Introduction

In ONE DATA, every analysis process is defined as a separate workflow. As a result, users can draw on a comprehensive library of predefined processors and methods which they can use to transform data, apply statistical methods or conveniently create entire analysis sequences. All existing processors can be individually adjusted, and internal algorithms (e.g. R or Python) additionally integrated.

Access a workflow

The workflow list can be accessed either by clicking on the WORKFLOWS tab in the menu bar or by clicking on Workflows on the right.


Existing workflows within the current project are listed in a time descending order. 


Using the search field at the top of the workflow list, the user can search a workflow by its name. 


Selecting several workflows

In order to select several workflows of the list, hover the cursor over a workflow item, and a small box will appear that can be ticked. The selected workflows then can either be opened, deleted or shared to other projects by choosing the respective option on the left navigation menu.


Create a Workflow

The user has several opportunities to create a new workflow:


  1. From the project overview by clicking "Create New Workflow" on the left menu.
  2. Within the workflow overview by clicking "Create New" on the left menu. 


The user is then directed to the workflow editor.


Workflow editor


A workflow is built by adding and connecting several processors. It can then be executed to accomplish the desired task. Processors can be selected by right-clicking or double-clicking on the blank page which opens the list of all available processors. In order to search for a desired processor, the user can type its name in the search field on the top of the list. Processors can be connected by clicking on the output port/node of one processor and dragging the link to the input port/node of the next processor. This may also be another possibility to insert new processors. By dragging the link to a blank space, the processor list is opened. The selected processor then has its input port automatically linked.

To delete a selected processor, the user can click on the red trash icon appearing at the bottom right or simply use the keyboard delete button.

After connecting all processors the workflow can be saved and run by clicking the button "Save & Run" in the upper left corner.
If the workflow has been executed successfully, a green mark is displayed on the processors holding output information.

Action Menu

The following action buttons are available on the left menu:


 

Change the name, add keywords, a description and/or notes to the workflow.


Display workflow and processor notes.


Save and execute the workflow.


Save the workflow without executing it.


By clicking "Job/Config State" a menu appears on the right side holding information about the status of the current job.


Displays a menu on the right side with a list of available workflow variables. New variables can also be created and edited.


 

Displays a menu on the right side with a list of created jobs.


Displays a menu on the right side with a list of available reports assigned to the current workflow. new reports can also be created.


Displays a menu on the right side with a list of dependent resources (e.g. Data Tables).


Apply an automatic layout to the workflow making it easier to interpret.


Focus the browser view to the center of the page.
