Harmony Square Update Activity

Introduction

A Square Update activity updates an existing customer at a Square connection and is intended to be used as a target to consume data in an operation. After configuring a Square connection, you can configure as many Square activities as you like for each Square connection.

Create a Square Activity

An instance of an activity is created from a connection using an activity type.

To create an instance of an activity, drag the activity type to the design canvas or copy the activity type and paste it on the design canvas. For details, see Creating an Activity Instance in Component Reuse.

An existing activity can be edited from these locations:

Configure a Square Update Activity

Follow these steps to configure a Square Update activity:

Step 1: Enter a Name and Specify Settings

Connections tab

  • Name: Enter a name to use to identify the Square Update activity. The name must be unique for each Update activity and must not contain forward slashes (/) or colons (:).

  • Continue on Error: Select to continue the activity execution if an error is encountered for a dataset in a batch request. If any errors are encountered, they are written to the operation log.

  • Save & Exit: If enabled, click to save the configuration for this step and close the activity configuration.

  • Next: Click to temporarily store the configuration for this step and continue to the next step. The configuration will not be saved until you click the Finished button on the last step.

  • Discard Changes: After making changes, click Discard Changes to close the configuration without saving changes made to any step. A message will ask you to confirm that you want to discard changes.

Step 2: Review the Data Schemas

Connections tab

  • Data Schema: The request and response data schemas for Square will be displayed. If the operation uses a transformation, the data schemas will be displayed again later during the transformation mapping process, where you can map to target fields using source objects, scripts, variables, custom values, and more.

    The Square connector uses the Square REST API. Refer to the API documentation for information on the schema fields.

    • Request:

      Request Schema Field/Node Notes
      customer Node of the customer
      customerID ID of the specific customer
      givenName The customer's given (first) name
      familyName The customer's family (last) name
      companyName The customer's company
      nickname The customer's nickname
      emailAddress The customer's email address
      phoneNumber The customer's phone number
      referenceID The customer's reference ID
      note A note on the customer
      birthday The customer's birthday
    • Response:

      Response Schema Field/Node Notes
      update Node of the update
      isUpdated Whether the customer record was updated (true) or not updated (false)
      message Message from the Create activity
      customer Node of the customer
      givenName The customer's given (first) name
      familyName The customer's family (last) name
      companyName The customer's company
      nickname The customer's nickname
      emailAddress The customer's email address
      phoneNumber The customer's phone number
  • Refresh: Click the refresh icon Refresh icon or the word Refresh to regenerate schemas from the endpoint. This action also regenerates the schema in other locations throughout the project where the same schema is referenced, such as in an adjacent transformation.

  • Back: Click to temporarily store the configuration for this step and return to the previous step.

  • Finished: Click to save the configuration for all steps and close the activity configuration.

  • Discard Changes: After making changes, click Discard Changes to close the configuration without saving changes made to any step. A message will ask you to confirm that you want to discard changes.

Next Steps

After configuring a Square Update activity, complete the configuration of the operation by adding and configuring other activities, transformations, or scripts as operation steps. You can also configure an operation's operation settings, which include the ability to chain operations together that are in the same or different workflows.

After a Square activity has been created, menu actions for that activity are accessible from the project pane in either the Workflows or the Components tabs, and from the design canvas. See Activity Actions Menu for details.

Square Update activities can be used as a target with these operation patterns: - Transformation Pattern - Two-transformation Pattern (as the first or second target)

Other patterns are not valid using Square Update activities. See the validation patterns on the Operation Validity page.

To use the activity with scripting functions, write the data to a temporary location and then use that temporary location in the scripting function.

When ready, deploy and run the operation and validate behavior by checking the operation logs.
