Using the Flow Debugger

Flows can span multiple systems, such as POP, IMAP, Application Servers, and Database Servers, and may or may not involve an end user. A flow can run an approval process, check or send email, handle an incident, or turn on a server. To ensure the flow runs without errors and has no performance issues, debugging is highly recommended throughout the development stages.

Using Debugging Steps

When debugging a flow, it is sometimes useful to create debugging steps, which can provide information about or gather data from a certain step in the flow before the flow has finished running. Debugging steps can record information in system logs, output the current step's flow data, output a message, or output a string.

Using Breakpoints in the Flow Debugger

The Flow Debugger is the platform's environment for testing and debugging flows before putting them into production. When testing, it may be necessary to temporarily halt the flow's progress so that data can be analyzed mid-flow.

Introduction to Exception Handling

Exception handling is the process of responding to the occurrence, during computation, of exceptions – anomalous or exceptional events requiring special processing – often changing the normal flow of program execution.
