Step 1: Create an Adapter

An adapter can be considered as the definition of a function. This function defines an input definition, runs logic on the input, defines the output, and provides a result.

Each adapter specifies input and output: Both input and output are Trigger CIs that are specifically defined in the adapter. The adapter extracts data from the input Trigger CI and passes this data as parameters to the code. Data from related CIs is sometimes passed to the code too. For details, see Related CIs Window. An adapter's code is generic, apart from these specific input Trigger CI parameters that are passed to the code.

For details on input components, see Data Flow Management Concepts.
