Working with helper flow tips

Last week I published How to Setup a Workflows Helper Flow (With For-Each and Streaming Cards). This guide shows how to setup a helper flow with For-Each card and the streaming option.

Jacob Walters from MacAdmins Slack channel shared more tips for working with helper flows:

  • Use a consistent and easily understood naming convention
  • If your workflows use multiple helper flows, be consistent with naming your variables across them
  • Helper flows can call themselves (loops and recursion)!
  • Cards like Reduce, Filter are effectively helper flows with loops and a defined output- great for iterating through lists

Helper flow with multiple inputs

This tip is from Andy Haupt, Senior IT Solutions Engineer at Instacart. Andy also hangs out at MacAdmins Slack #okta-workflows channel.

As long as we are on the helper flow topic, here is a 15-second video on how to create a helper flow with multiple inputs and set inputs type:
