Creating and Managing Custom Actions
ThingWorx Flow lets you create custom actions per your requirement. You can create custom actions from scratch using the code editor or you can re-use the out-of-the-box actions to suit your requirements. Most of the out-of-the-box actions are available for customization. After you create these custom actions, you can use them in your workflow.
