Router component

Router component

Examines the message content and routes the message onto a different flow branch based on data contained in the message.

This component implements the Content-Based Router pattern from Enterprise Integration Patterns (EIP).


This component has no trigger functions. This means it will not be accessible to select as a first component during the integration flow design.



This action is responsible for performing the only function of the component, which is described in the header. Here is how to use Route action:

First you have to define a new flow branch,

Route action 1

then you have to define a routing criteria

Route action 2

and setup your next steps:

Route action 3

For a better understanding of how the component is used in flows, we recommend that you look at the example of using the component router, which you can find in this article.

If you want to know more of how the routing mechanism works, please read this article.

Environment Variables

Please Note: From the platform version 20.51 we deprecated the component LOG_LEVEL environment variable. Now you can control logging level per each step of the flow.
