FAQs

Security

What is the timeout period for my active session?

Built.io Flow Enterprise supports two types of session timeouts:

1. Idle Session Timeout: If the user is idle (i.e., if no activity is performed) for eight hours at a stretch, the session will expire.

2. Absolute Session Timeout: After 120 hours, the active session will expire.


When a user session ends, the authtoken expires. In order to make further requests or perform any activity, the user needs to login again and create a new authtoken.

Why some of my triggers take longer time to execute?

Some triggers constantly check for updates in the external services and run in real time, whereas some triggers check for updates in external services periodically (e.g., every five minutes), and hence take more time. The second type of triggers are called ‘Polling’ triggers and can be identified by the ‘clock’ sign given beside the trigger service icon.

Is it possible to change trigger settings for only a specific workflow even if the trigger is connected to multiple workflows?

No. If the trigger is being used in multiple workflows, then any changes to it will be reflected in all the workflows it is being used in. If you don’t wish to change the trigger settings for the rest of the workflows, then it's advised that you create a new trigger.

Organizations

What are default roles and how they are different from custom roles?

Default Roles: Built.io Flow Enterprise provides three predefined roles by default. Each role has specific permissions (e.g., manage users, payments, roles, etc.) which cannot be modified and the default roles cannot be deleted from an organization.


 - Admin: This role has permissions to create and manage the users, roles, and projects within the organization.

 - Billing Manager: This role has permissions to manage plans and payment information of your organization.

 - Developer: This role has permissions to manage all projects of your organization.  


Custom Roles: The organization owner or Admin users can create a custom role in an organization. For custom roles, the scope of the permissions is limited to accessing Projects. This means the owner/admin can specify which projects are accessible to this role. Custom roles cannot have access to billing or organization settings.

Can I use my Built.io Flow account plan for organizations?

No. Your organization is independent from your personal Built.io Flow account, and hence would need an individual plan.

If I leave an organization or am removed from an organization, can I still see the workflows or projects created by me/shared with me in the organization?

No. once you leave an organization or have been removed from an organization, you can not see any of the resources (including the ones shared with you or created by you) of an organization.

Projects

How can I delete my project?

To delete a project, follow the steps given below:

Step 1: In your organization, locate the project you want to delete.

Step 2: Click on the vertical ellipsis icon (or three tiny dots) in the top-right corner of your project, and click on ‘Delete’.

Can I share my project with other users?

No. The feature is not available currently. 

I am unable to create a project with a project name ‘default’. Please help.

In your organization, a system-generated ‘default’ project is already available. Consequently, you cannot create another project with the same name. 

I am unable to create a project in my organization. What could be the issue?

This could be due to one of the following reasons:

1. You have been assigned a ‘Billing manager’ role. This role does not have access to create a project.

2. You have been assigned a ‘custom role’. Users with custom role cannot create a project.

3. You do not have the required permission to create projects in the organization.

Can a user with custom role create, update, or delete a project?

No. A user with custom role cannot create a new project, nor can he update or delete the accessible projects.

Who can view the audit log screen?

Every user can view his or her personal account-level audit log. However, organization-level audit log can be accessed only by the organization owner and admin.
