Work with Connections

What Is a Connection?

A Connection in Hero_Flow is a means to connect to the location where your data is stored. For example, to add Salesforce data in Hero_Flow, you create a Salesforce Connection and provide the login details such as the URL, username, and password token. 

How to Work with a Connection?

Creating Connections are the first step on your journey to create an automation. Before you can start searching for leads or filling out forms, you need data. A Hero_Flow Connection provides access to your data. 

Connections are also used in other features of Hero_Flow: 

  • Sources - A Connection is used to create Sources when specifying where the data you want to bring into Hero_Flow is coming from.
  • Sinks - A Connection is used to create Sinks when specifying where the data you want to write out of Hero_Flow is being written to.
