Event Management

We are using an example of event-based management, where we have chain of event Snaps in this Pipeline, designated to perform specific tasks pertaining to their functionalities.

In this example, our Pipeline activities are as follows:

  1. Creating an event with required input using the Create Event Snap.
  2. Mapping the event’s information using Mapper Snap.
  3. Updating an event using Update Event Snap.
  4. Listing the events in the calendar using List Events Snap.
  5. Mapping the event’s information using Mapper Snap.
  6. Deleting an existing event from the calendar using Delete Event Snap.

Here, let us look into the role of the Create Event Snap in this Pipeline.

We create an event in the calendar with all the required inputs. Let us provide input in the Snap Settings and look at the output.

Create Event Snap
Output

Upon execution, we see an output confirming creation of an event with the given input.

We use the Mapper Snap to map the newly created event’s details with the details of another event to update.

Mapper Snap 

Next, we configure the Update Event Snap to use the inputs from the Mapper Snap as shown below:

Update Event
Output

Upon execution, we see an output with the update reflecting.

We retrieve the list of events from the calendar associated to an individual's mailbox. Let us provide input in the Snap Settings and look at the output.

List Events
Output

Upon execution, we see list of events and details related to the events shown in the output.

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.

Mapper Snap

We then add the Delete Event Snap and configure it to delete the specified event as shown below:

Delete Snap
Output

Upon execution, we see an output with the update reflecting saying the event with specific ID is deleted.
