Execution and Scheduling


To manually execute (or run) a node, press the play button on the node in the IDE or on the node preview. After a node is finished running, the execution protocol will automatically trigger downstream nodes that depend on the newly created data -- this is the reactive execution protocol.


Source nodes, those at the beginning of a graph that have no upstream nodes, can be triggered using a CRON scheduler on the node. Configure by setting directly in the Config tab of the node, seen below.

You can add a CRON trigger to intermediate node to overwrite the default reactive trigger. This is common when upstream data is coming from a webhook or a more frequent data source than is required for downstream nodes.
