Overview 

This Data Flow template has three Data Operations that allow app builders to generate a code with a specific length to use as a one-time password by passing data through this Data Flow.

In Connection Builder, Data Flow templates can be found with pre-populated sample data. However, to meet the requirements of their Journey, app builders should perform the necessary adjustments, such as adding other Data Ops.

Data Operations

This Data Flow contains five main parts:

Inputs

The Start pane keeps track of the inputs required by the Data Flow. 

Transform Data Operation

  • Transform Expression: Airscript expression to generate the max value based on the length of the input.
  • Output Format: Variable
  • Type: Number
  • Run Results: max output Variable of type Number that is automatically created to hold the results of this Operation

Transform Data Operation

  • Transform Expression: Airscript expression to assort a number between 0 and the maximum value defined by the input.
  • Output Format: Variable
  • Type: Text
  • Run Results: random output Variable of type Text that is automatically created to hold the results of this Operation

Transform Data Operation

  • Transform Expression: Airscript expression to make sure the assorted number has the length indicated in the first Data Op. If the number is lower, zeros will be added to the front.
  • Output Format: Variable
  • Type: Text
  • Run Results: code output Variable of type Text that is automatically created to hold the results of this Operation.

Output

The End step is where variables from the Data Flow can be used as an output.

  • Sample Return Value: code of type Text

Use Cases

  • Allow app builders to generate a variable length code to use as OTP.
