Overview 

This Data Flow template is made up of four Data Operations that allow app builders to add an image to an existing ticket in Zendesk. This is achieved by connecting with the Zendesk integration and passing data to 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.

Bear in mind that in order to use Zendesk as a datasource, credentials must be set in Configuration Builder > Integrations to connect the corresponding account.
