Known issues

These issues will be fixed in the next minor release of Sympathy for Data, v1.1:

  • UUID’s are not cleared/reused by the platform. Opening the same flow several times in a row will assign new UUID’s to all flows but the first, even if the flows are closed in between.
  • Execution of subflows don’t always execute all nodes – double clicking a subflow is currently equivalent to double clicking the end nodes within it. This is sometimes blocked by the execution engine to avoid race conditions.
  • Pressing execute in a subflow executes the entire flow.
  • It is not possible to copy/paste subflow inputs and outputs.
