Flow run notifications

Adobe Experience Platform allows data to be ingested from external sources while providing you with the ability to structure, label, and enhance incoming data using Platform services. You can ingest data from a variety of sources such as Adobe applications, cloud-based storage, databases, and many others.
Adobe Experience Platform Flow Service is used to collect and centralize customer data from various disparate sources within Platform. The service provides a user interface and RESTful API from which all supported sources are connectable.
With Adobe I/O Events, you can subscribe to events and use webhooks to receive notifications regarding the status of your flow runs. These notifications contain information about the success of your flow run or errors that contributed to a run's failure.
This document provides steps on how to subscribe to events, register webhooks, and receive notifications containing information on the status of your flow runs.

Getting started

This tutorial assumes that you have already created at least one source connection whose flow runs you want to monitor. If you have not yet configured a source connection, start by visiting the sources overview to configure the source of your choice before returning to this guide.
This document also requires a working understanding of webhooks and how to connect a webhook from one application to another. Refer to the I/O Events documentation for an introduction to webhooks.

Register a webhook for flow run notifications

In order to receive flow run notifications, you must use Adobe Developer Console to register a webhook to your Experience Platform integration.
Follow the tutorial on subscribing to I/O Event notifications for detailed steps on how to accomplish this.
During the subscription process, ensure that you select Platform notifications as the event provider, and select the following event subscriptions:
  • Experience Platform Source's Flow Run Succeeded
  • Experience Platform Source's Flow Run Failed

Receive flow run notifications

With your webhook connected and your event subscription complete, you can start receiving flow run notifications through the webhook dashboard.
A notification returns information such as the number of ingestion jobs run, file size, and errors. A notification also returns a payload associated with your flow run in JSON format. The response payload can either be classified as sources_flow_run_success or sources_flow_run_failure .
If partial ingestion is enabled during the flow creation process, a flow that contains both successful and failed ingestions will be marked as sources_flow_run_success only if the number of errors is below the error threshold percentage set during the flow creation process. If a successful flow run contains errors, these errors will still be included as part of the return payload.

Success

A successful response returns a set of metrics that define characteristics of a specific flow run and activities that outline how data is transformed.

Property
Description
fileInfo
A URL that leads to an overview of the files that were both successfully and unsuccessfully ingested.
See the appendix for more information on error messages.

Next steps

You can now subscribe to events that allow you to receive real-time notifications on your flow run statuses. For more information on flow runs and sources, see the sources overview .

Appendix

The following sections provides additional information for working with flow run notifications.

Understanding error messages

Ingestion errors can happen when data is being copied from the source or when the copied data is being processed to Platform. See the table below for more information on specific errors.
Error
Description
CONNECTOR-1001-500
An error occurred while data is being copied from a source.
CONNECTOR-2001-500
An error occurred while copied data is being processed to Platform. This error could be regarding parsing, validating, or transforming.
