When a pipeline is running, data is processed through the connected Snaps.
- In Designer, clicking the Run Pipeline button starts a pipeline's execution.
- In Manager, select Pipelines to run on the Pipeline tab of a project and click the Execute selected pipelines button
As the Pipeline executes, a Snap's color in Designer is updated to reflect its state.
|Pipeline color||Pipeline state|
|Light gray || Idle|
Pipelines can be configured to be run as scheduled, triggered, or always on. See Tasks for more information.
Using Parameters in a Pipeline
Parameters can be defined for use in a pipeline on the Edit Pipeline properties dialog.
To use the parameter within the pipeline, open the infobox for a Snap that handles expressions and enter
_<paramkey> (underscore + parameter Key) as the Expression value.
