Automated Publishing and Transformation

Wehn set up, the automated workflow performs service publishing and data transformation as a background process that doesn’t require any user interaction. The automated workflow can be set up to listen to events, such as the creation of a new data set. When this happens, services can be created and published, and transformation projects be executed. A typical automated workflow looks like this:

  1. Creation of a non-INSPIRE data set
  2. Publication of services for the non-INSPIRE data set
  3. Transformation of data to an INSPIRE target model
  4. Publication of services for the newly created INSPIRE data set

When logged in as a theme manager or organisation superuser, follow these steps to set up the automated workflow:

  1. Go to «Themes»
  2. Pick the theme you’d like to automate from the list of themes
  3. Go to «Automation»
  4. Decide which events should trigger the automated workflow. For each event type such as the creation of a new data set or a modification of an existing one, decide when the execution should happen - manually, immediately or with a delay. We recommend immediate execution for new data sets and manual or delayed execution for updates.
  5. If you’ve selected «Later» for one of the event types, proceed to set up when exactly the transformation and publishing should be executed:
    • Dayly: Pick the time of the day at which the transformation and publishing should be executed.
    • Weekly: Pick the weekday and the time of the day at which the transformation and publishing should be executed.
    • Monthly: Pick the day of the month and the time of the day at which the transformation and publishing should be executed.
