Appsmith Workflows are essential for automating tasks and orchestrating processes within applications. They provide a practical solution for automating tasks, managing workflows, enabling human interactions, and integrating with external services or Appsmith apps.

Workflow capabilities

Appsmith Workflows are versatile and designed to handle a wide range of scenarios:

Automate business-critical processes

Using app-building capabilities of Appsmith in workflows, developers can automate critical tasks based on business rules and requirements. From ticket assignments in customer support workflows to complex data processing operations, Workflows streamline processes efficiently.

Enable Human-in-the-Loop interactions

Appsmith Workflows allow for human interventions when necessary. Developers use the Appsmith app to access workflows and create interfaces for users to interact with and take actions based on decision points. This integration between workflows and the Appsmith app enhances the efficiency and effectiveness of workflows.

Explore trigger types

Appsmith supports different trigger types to configure actions and processes within workflows:

  • Webhook- Triggered by external events or HTTP requests, Webhook triggers enable real-time data processing and action execution based on incoming data. Use this trigger type to integrate Appsmith workflow with external system or app. Learn how to use the Webhook triggers in the Getting started with workflows tutorial.

  • Integrated Datasource for use in Appsmith Apps- Trigger your workflow from Appsmith apps in the same workspace by creating workflow queries.

  • Scheduled Jobs (Cron Jobs)- Scheduled to run at specific times or intervals, Scheduled Jobs automate tasks using Cron expressions. Stay tuned for updates on the availability and usage of Scheduled Jobs within Appsmith. (Coming Soon)
