Data Process in Boomi:

Data Process shape is one of the most commonly used shapes in Boomi Processes. It is used to manipulate the incoming data within a process in so many ways based on the requirement. You just need to select the processing step from the list provided in the drop-down. You can add multiple steps within a single shape by clicking on the ‘+’ icon. Boomi will perform the manipulations in sequential order of the processing steps defined. Also, you have to remember that the Data process is just a shape but not a component so you won’t get the revision history for this shape individually. Let’s see about the data processing steps below in detail.
