Action steps

An action step performs an operation in the target app: typically, a create, update, or search operation. Each action requires a set of input fields and typically returns data that can be used in subsequent steps.

For example, the Post message (quick) action in the Slack connector allows you to choose a channel, the message content, an icon to use for the message, and additional message attachments.

In addition to using manually entering constants, for example the text in the Message field above, you can also use step data to pass content from previous steps to fields in a later step. See Using step data.
