How do I automatically generate an Attribute Value in a Flow Event?

Where more than one Attribute Segment is defined, Flow will combine the results of each segment into a single string value.   

Using this functionality, you can actually generate information without the need to access your data sources. For example, use the following segments on a “Work Order” attribute:

  • Constant “FL001”
  • Period Start formatted to “yyyy” (i.e. only the year)
  • Period Index formatted to “0000” (i.e. always 4 digits)


This will result in an auto-generated “Work Order” attribute, defined by the equipment, year and unique index: 




Notice how the “Work Order” attribute has been made up of:“FL001” + Period Start (yyyy)+ Period Index (0000)= “FL00120150141
