We are using an example of event-based management, where we have chain of Snaps in this Pipeline, designated to perform specific tasks pertaining to their functionalities.
In this example, our Pipeline activities are as follows:
- event with all required input Create Event Snap.
- Mapping the event’s information using the Mapper Snap.
- Updating an event using the Update Event Snap.
- Listing the events in the calendar using the List Events Snap.
- Mapping an event’s information using the Mapper Snap.
- Deleting an existing event from the calendar using the Delete Event Snap.
Here, let us look into theCreate Event Snap in this Pipeline.
We event in the calendar with all the required inputs.
Next, we configure the Update Event Snap to use the inputs from the Mapper Snap.
Upon execution, the output reflects the updates.
We retrieve the list of events from the calendar associated with an individual's mailbox.
Upon execution, the output displays the list of events and details related to the events.
We use the Mapper Snap to map the event’s ID received from the List Events Snap with the Existing Event ID field’s value in the Delete Event Snap.
We then add the Delete Event Snap and configure it to delete the specified event.
Upon execution, the output shows that the event with the specified ID is deleted.
