Work with Outputs

What Is an Output?

An Output is where the results of your data are written after the calculations and manipulations are completed within your Flow.

In the Flow, after you bring in your data through a Connection and Input, you build your automation using Flow Studio's Functions. After you complete the automation you write out your resulting data with an Output. The Output may use the same Connection as your Input, or it may be written to a different Connection. However, the data is always written to a new table rather than overwriting the original data.

Outputs can incorporate Flows created in Flow Studio or models created in AI Studio.

How to Work With an Output?

The Output is the end of your Flow pipeline. When the Flow is complete, you need to write out the results. The results are written out using an Output. This result can also be used in other later Flows.

When you configure an Output, you specify what data is written, either to existing or new output fields.
