There are some instances where you may wish to package a set of processes that ready for installation by managed accounts. Dell Boomi offers a solution to this problem with the use of Integration packs. Integrations packs allow you to offer a pre-packaged solution to your end users.
There are however a few things to consider before using integration packs:
- You can only have a maximum of 100 processes in a single integration pack.
- There are several components that cannot be added to an integration pack. Those elements included
- Process Route Components
- Processes that contain Process Route Components
- API Components
- Certificate Components
- Processes must first be published to a process library before being added to an integration pack. For more information about how to use process libraries in Dell Boomi, see this link
Integration pack management and multi-install integration packs are optional Dell Boomi AtomSphere features that must first be enabled before using.
