Overview of Design Patterns

This chapter describes good practices or patterns to design automations that perform data synchronization.

We make a distinction between different types of data synchronization:

Scheduling or triggered-based using Webhooks

Data synchronizations need to run on regular intervals, two patterns are possible:

  • Scheduled automations
  • Triggered automations (Webhooks)

Scheduled automations

Automation runs e.g. every minute and processes data incrementally.

Benefit: In the first run, also historic data can be processed (this is impossible with Webhooks).

Limitations: longer intervals can cause delays in data synchronization and increase the risk of conflicts.

Triggered automations (Webhooks)

Automations that are triggered to run each time a change occurs in one of the platforms.

Benefit: minimal delay in synchronization.

Limitations: impossible to process historic data.
