How to Delete and Re-add Node Connections

Updated 1 month ago by Karan

Introduction

Byteline allows you to delete and re-add connections between nodes. It enables you to run flow up to a specific node or skip nodes from the flow path. In this guide, you will learn how to manage connections between different nodes to remove nodes from a flow execution or to route flow execution to an entirely different path.

In this documentation, you will understand how to:

  • Run the flow up to a particular node
  • Change the flow execution path by skipping a node/nodes

So, let’s get started. 

Run the flow up to a particular node

In case, you want to make some changes and run the flow only up to a selective node, you can do that by deleting the connection between the subsequent node and the node till which you want to run the flow. Use the following steps do so:

Step 1: On the Flow Designer page, select the node till which you want to run the flow. 

Step 2: Click on the connection settings icon appearing on the line connecting the respective nodes. 

Step 3: By clicking on the Settings icon, you will see two options; One with a Plus (+) and the other with a Trash icon. Click on the Trash icon to break the Connection between the respective nodes. 

Step 4: As the Connection is broken, the data will send up to the node to which you want to make the changes. 

Change the flow execution path by skipping a node/nodes

In this case, you can skip a node or nodes and send the data or the changes to the selective nodes. You need to follow the following steps to do so:

Step 1: On the Flow Designer page, you have to look for the nodes between which you want to set the connections and send the flow. 

Step 2: If there is any node that you want to exclude or skip from the Connection, you need to delete the connections between that particular node and the nodes appearing next to them.

Step 3: By clicking on the Settings icon, you will see two options; One with a Plus (+) and the other with a Trash icon. Click on the Trash icon to break the Connection between the respective nodes. 

Step 4: Once you delete the Connection, drag the cursor between the nodes that you want to establish the Connection. 

Note: You can also drag down the node that you want to skip from the flow. 

Thus, the data or the flow will only run between the selected nodes. 

This way you can easily manage the Connection and run the flow between different Nodes. In case you experience any issues feel free to reach out to us.
