A Pipe is a single integration unit, i.e., the sub unit of every system integration, responsible for synchronizing all entities (Customers, Orders, Products, etc.). Each pipe is mapped to a Flow to carry out the underlying integration logic.
Data synchronization will be handled periodically at certain configured time intervals. This is the most commonly used Pipe type since it offers optimum performance.
Example: Every 2 hours
Data synchronization is done in real-time using an API call from any system through Cloras. For example, services like Pricing may be configured as a Dynamic Pipe to fetch the prices in real-time.
The pipes are displayed either as a Grid or a table.
In the Integrations page, the following information is present in grid/tabular form:
Enables or disables the working of a pipe, used especially during scheduled synchronization
Displays the name of Integration Pipe
Systems connected in the pipe
Type of Integration
Displays the time at which the last sync was performed and if the sync was complete or not

For Dynamic pipe, scheduling is disabled.

The Sync process for Batch type integration can be automated by scheduling it. This is done by clicking on the Enable Auto Mode link present just below the pipe name or clicking the icon and then editing the synchronization time. The Minimum Interval Period for scheduling is 5 minutes
