Terminology

Connection

The link between Input of one Node (Sub-graph) and other node's Output.

Core node

A node in the Core Nodes tab in TOOLBOX of Core. A ready-to-use node for a common task.

Graph table

Visual grid area with Sub-graphs, Nodes, and Connections.

Input and Output

Data (messages) that comes in and comes out of a node (sub-graph). You may directly connect input and output points on the graph table only if they have the same Socket type. To connect not compatible sockets, use a Mapping node.

Node

Node is the basic element of the Aitheon Core platform that allows a user to build business process logic without tech knowledge.

It's a separate block of logic (computer program) that processes data from Input and returns Output data.

There are ready-to-use nodes, users also can place a request for an additional required node.

Mapping Node

Mapping Node is a Node that allows connecting Sockets of different types.

Provisional Node

Provisional Node is a Node that is created by the user for building visual business process logic on the graph table. When logic is ready, the user can make a Request to develop a Node from the Provisional Node's settings menu.

Request

Describes in detail the logic of information processing for node development. May be submitted at Marketplace and Provisional node setting menu.

Developers will take your request to development sooner if you offer a better price or if your request gets many votes from other users.

Service Node

Specific Node for a specific Aitheon service (for example, Accounting, Robotics, Procurement, etc.) Placed in accordant Service Sub-graph. Contains necessary procession logic for this service.

Service Sub-graph

Specific Sub-graph for a specific Aitheon service (for example, Accounting, Robotics, Procurement, etc.) Contains necessary Service Node for this service plus additional nodes, if needed.

Socket

Socket is a specific type of Input or Output Message set up in Node's properties. You may connect nodes with sockets of the same type. Using Mapping Node, you can connect nodes with sockets of different types.

Sub-graph

Like Node, Sub-graph is a basic element of the Aitheon Core platform, it allows users to build business process logic without tech knowledge.

Contains Nodes and Connections between them. Used for a clearer view of automation process logic.
