The design canvas is the central area of the project designer serving as the primary workspace where you visually design integrations. This page covers elements of the user interface that are present along the top of the design canvas, as well as key concepts to understand while working on the design canvas.
To access the design canvas, first open a project. In an open project, the design canvas is the central area of the project designer located to the right of the project pane and to the left of the component palette:
These elements are present along the top of the design canvas:
Workflow Tabs: Workflows are accessed from tabs along the top of the design canvas. Additional workflows can be created by clicking the plus icon . The new workflow will open in a new tab within the design canvas. Workflows are numbered sequentially in the order they are created, as 1.0, 2.0, 3.0, etc. If you reorder workflows, this numeric sequence adjusts accordingly (see Reordering Workflows under Workflow Creation and Design). Workflows can be renamed by double-clicking on the name within the workflow tab.
The primary function of the design canvas is to have a workspace where you visually design workflows. Each workflow is made up of a collection of operations that is used as a tool for your convenience to help segregate different parts of the project. For information on designing workflows, see Workflow Creation and Design.
