Last published on: March 2nd, 2022

Popflow Studio makes repetitive difficult tasks that would require a developer, easy. The 'Get Data' activity is no different. The 'Get Data' activity implements the REST API's within the service cloud without having to any write code.

The 'Get Data' Activity allows you to get the data from the selected entity. You can add multiple filters to filter the data. It has three child buttons 'SINGLE MATCH', 'MULTI MATCH' and 'NO MATCH'.

After opening the 'Get Data' activity, you will get the following configuration panel.

Default Configuration Parameters

Field Description
Enter Entity Entity name to fetch the data
Enter Property Selected entity property name
Enter Value Property value to be fetched
Comparison Condition to fetch the data
Save Result In All the data fetched will be stored in this
Filters Filters to apply to the data from the selected entity.
