Detailed description of steps and their categories

Definition

The steps are predefined components that fulfill specific functionalities. They are used in a flow to create code in a more graphic way, so you don’t have to learn to code in any specific language. Instead, you just need to drag and drop the steps from the steps palette and into the canvas area, and then connect them by dragging a connector from a source step and dropping it into a target step. Steps are divided into categories where each category contains multiple steps. You can find the documentation for each step in the following pages.
