Jitterbit Harmony Design Studio is Jitterbit's desktop designer for configuring, and testing Jitterbit integration projects.
Design Studio is a standalone thick client that can be installed on a Windows or Mac workstation. It simply requires access to the Internet on the workstation or laptop that it runs on. Download the latest Design Studio version through the Jitterbit Harmony Portal from the Downloads page of the Management Console.
The next stage in evolution of the Harmony Studio design application is Cloud Studio, an independent product distinct from Design Studio, that is offered entirely through the web. To learn more about the differences between the two design applications, see Cloud Studio Overview for Design Studio Users.
The Jitterbit Harmony Design Studio is entirely wizard-driven, taking you step by step through the creation of data mappings, connectivity, and transformations. The Design Studio features automatic data mapping and enterprise connectors to make connectivity as easy as possible. Complex data models are supported including Salesforce.com and dynamic schemas, as well as connecting to SOAP API, REST API, and cloud-based APIs such as the Salesforce Bulk API.
The user-friendly graphical interface provides multiple tools for easy definition of complex business processes including predefined Formula Builder functions, enhanced scripting and validation tools, chained operations to be sequentially triggered by events in a prior operation, user-defined local variables that run only in real-time operation of a specific process, and predefined global variables that are defined throughout the entire project.
In the design phase, you can test a query or other operation to make sure all components are valid. Or you can actually run the operation, which brings up an operations monitor at the bottom of your screen to report start/end times and progress, number of records processed, and success or failure.
Every element you create in Design Studio is defined in metadata. The metadata is deployed to an environment to be stored, and is then managed by the Management Console.
You can navigate the Design Studio user interface by using these components:
