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”
