Dynamic Configuration

When defining automation which needs to interact with external systems or you need to make the workflow execution configurable, static workflows may prove challenging to use.

You can define a settings module where you can define all of the configurable parameters your automation requires. This can be anything from URL addresses to login credentials and access tokens.

When storing access tokens and other credentials, make sure to properly configure access control.
