You must build small process designs that perform discrete tasks within the larger business workflow. Several process designs can then be executed in a sequence (or in parallel) through a higher-level process design using the Job Orchestration invoker. Alternatively, you can invoke these small process designs directly using the RESTful API of Integration Manager considering them similar to micro-services and providing your own orchestration logic.
Invoking the integration through the API provides near real time updates to maintain both applications in synchronization. Most SaaS applications have an API that you can use to trigger the integration automatically. The Job request methods support the ability to pass data into the job request so you can set macro values and send the data payload depending on the use case.
