The development environment provides you with the Action Flow Editor to define the action flow of your actions. This editor is divided into the following areas:
Action Flow Toolbox: located at the left hand side of Service Studio's workspace, it provides a set of tools that can be dragged onto the Content Canvas to define the behavior of the action.
The tools are, for example, an Execute Action, an Aggregate, or an If; when dragged onto the Content Canvas, a new element in the action flow is created.
Content Canvas: this is the central area of Service Studio's workspace where you drop the tools both from the Action Flow Toolbox and the eSpace Tree to define the logic of your action.
To see the properties of an action flow element, select it on the Content Canvas and they'll be displayed in the Property window.
At the right hand side of Service Studio's workspace there's the eSpace Tree which also provides you with extended tools that can be dragged onto the Content Canvas to define the behavior of the action. For example, there you can find Entity Actions, User-Defined Actions, and Role Actions; when dragged onto the Content Canvas, a new element in the action flow is created.
To define the flow of an action connect the elements on the Content Canvas starting in the Start element - only one Start element is allowed in an action flow. To finish a flow path use the End element - depending on the elements you are using in the action flow you can have a single or multiple paths.
