User Settings

Provide settings in the Connect Portal to allow your users to configure their integration and workflows.
User Settings provide options for your users to configure settings for their integration in the Connect Portal. This makes it easy for you to create integrations that work with custom objects or fields that may be specific to your users' third-party app accounts.
For example, common use cases include:
  • Slack - choosing which channel that messages should be sent in
  • Salesforce - choosing a custom opportunity stage that new opportunities created in
  • Hubspot - choosing a custom lead status that new leads should be created with
  • Jira - choosing which Jira user that new issues should be assigned to
User Settings can be defined globally, at the integration level, or locally, at the workflow level.
  • If they are included at the integration level, the User Settings can be referenced from any workflow for that integration.
  • If they are included at the workflow level, the User Settings will appear when that workflow is enabled by your user and can only be referenced from the workflow it belongs to.

To add User Settings at the integration level, follow these steps:
  1. 1.

    Click the Configuration tab in the sidebar.
  3. 3.
    Under Settings in the sidebar, click + Add Setting.
  4. 4.
    Enter options for Name, Field Type, Tooltip, and whether or not the field should be required for your user to enable the integration.

Referencing User Settings in the Workflow Editor

Actions in Paragon will indicate when they accept User Settings as an input parameter. In these cases, you should first add the respective User Settings in the Connect Portal Editor, then use the variable menu to reference that User Setting in the Action sidebar.
Enter two left curly braces {{ to open the variable menu.

Testing User Settings

To test your Workflow User Settings, open the click the Preview button in the top-right of the navigation bar. This launches a live preview where you can test the end-user experience of your Connect Portal.

Connecting a test account

By clicking Enable in the Connect Portal Preview, you can connect a test account for that integration and configure any of its Workflow User Settings for that test account.

Testing workflows with user settings

Once you've enabled an integration in the Connect Portal Preview, you can test its workflows using the Test Workflow or Test Step button in the Workflow Editor. This will test the workflow on the account that you connected in the Connect Portal Preview, and any User Settings you configured in the Connect Portal Preview will be used as test data.
