About ThingWorx Flow
Integrate and Orchestrate
Data flows automate business processes by facilitating the progression of information through integrated systems. Flows trigger actions in each system that determine the next step or achieve a specified result, – such as a flow that begins with an alert from a device and ends with a completed service ticket.
ThingWorx Flow enables a flexible, configurable approach to connecting systems and facilitating flows of information between those systems. Its visual environment enhances usability, enabling developers and business users alike to easily understand, modify, copy, and repurpose flows to react quickly to evolving business needs and opportunities.

Insights: Overview of ThingWorx Flow Connectors
Connectors identify and define the information needed to connect with specific systems to enable the execution of a rich set of common enterprise application capabilities in the context of ThingWorx flows.
ThingWorx includes a broad selection of OOTB connectors for supported systems, including Microsoft Azure, Google, SAP, Salesforce, Windchill, Box, and more. Users can also choose from the system-specific connectors offered by partners in the ThingWorx Marketplace.
When neither system-specific nor standards-based connectors are available, users can build a custom connector to a system using ThingWorx Flow connector development utilities. These utilities allow users to copy and reuse actions and expose custom connectors in the flow interface as if they were natively available.
ThingWorx provides OOTB connectors for systems that do not have a specific connector but support one or more standards, including SQL, OData, Swagger, HTTP, RAML, SOAP, and OSLC. A single standards-based connector can interface with multiple versions of the same system, mitigating compatibility challenges by discovering and exposing the attributes of each version.
Custom Connector Actions
If a system is supported out of the box, but the current connector does not support a particular action needed for the flow, users can create custom actions for existing connectors, enabling support for very specific use cases.
