Sends a notification to a specified FME Flow instance.

This notification will trigger a topic which can then be used in an automation or with a subscriber. The topic may be used for a variety of actions, such as triggering a downstream workspace, or sending an email message to subscribed clients.

This transformer requires an FME Flow connection.

Performance Considerations

Windows systems may experience slow performance in situations where a high volume of notifications are sent. Performance may improve by disabling automatic proxy detection:

  1. Click the Start menu,
  2. In the 'Search programs and files' textbox, type 'proxy' and select 'Configure proxy server'.
  3. In the Internet Properties dialog, Connections tab, click LAN settings.
  4. Uncheck Automatically detect settings.
  5. Click OK.

Editing Transformer Parameters

Using a set of menu options, transformer parameters can be assigned by referencing other elements in the workspace. More advanced functions, such as an advanced editor and an arithmetic editor, are also available in some transformers. To access a menu of these options, click beside the applicable parameter. For more information, see Transformer Parameter Menu Options.

Defining Values

There are several ways to define a value for use in a Transformer. The simplest is to simply type in a value or string, which can include functions of various types such as attribute references, math and string functions, and workspace parameters. There are a number of tools and shortcuts that can assist in constructing values, generally available from the drop-down context menu adjacent to the value field.

Dialog Options - Tables

Transformers with table-style parameters have additional tools for populating and manipulating values.
