To store some data in a Cycle in the form of one or more JSON objects and access that data later in the same Cycle, you can use the Cycle Object Storage Connector.
Any data that is stored in the Connector will only be accessible within the same cycle.
The Cycle Object Storage Connector works using a Key that sets and gets a Value that can contain several separate properties. These could be several pieces of data about a contact such as their forename, surname etc.
If you only wish to store a single value, you could instead use the Cycle Data Storage Connector which works with simple Key and Value pairs.
When installing this Connector, you’re asked to provide a Field List.
This is a comma-separated list of the fields you intend to use. Cyclr will automatically create them as Custom Fields on the Add/Update Entry and Get All Entries Methods.
You could enter
firstname, lastname, dateofbirth for instance to create 3 separate Custom Fields to then map in a Cycle.
If you wish to add additional Fields after you’ve installed the Connector, you can simply return to the Setup and modify the Field List.
Add/Update Entry Method: either creates a new entry or updates an existing one using a unique Key and any values you’ve provided for the other Fields.
Get All Entries Method: returns all of the stored values in the context of the Cycle you’re working in.
This Connector builds upon the features of the Cycle Data Storage Connector and therefore supports most of the Methods documented here:
PLEASE NOTE: Using Utility Connectors counts toward your overall task usage.
