Components in Jiffy allows user to save the frequently used Jiffy steps separately in repository so that those can be reused across tasks instead of writing the same steps again and again in tasks. These components can be used any number of times in any number of tasks. There are two types of components:
Note: The ID remains the same and the version changes upon editing the data in the repository.
JIFFY users are provided with the functionality where a group of jiffy nodes that performs a task can be made as a component and can be used in any task. Refer to Bundled Components to know more on how to add bundled components. Refer to Task design using Bundled Components to know more on how to use bundled component in tasks.
UI components are used to save a set of UI steps to perform a particular UI action separately in repository so that the same can be reused in UI node scripting across tasks. These saved components will be available in drop down of UI node edit window for user to select appropriately.
For example, in a web page, if the LOGIN action takes 3 steps and POST action takes 4 steps, then create two UI components ‘Login’ and ‘Post’ with relevant steps and reuse these two components instead of writing 7 steps in each task.
