Execute InfoEngine Task
Use this action to execute an InfoEngine task configured on the Windchill instance. This action supports two types of InfoEngine tasks:
In-built Task—Out of the box connector tasks available with Windchill installation
Custom Task—Customized tasks which you can create
* 
The InfoEngine task has to be "HTTP access enabled" in the task definition. This allows the task to be called from the ThingWorx Flow action.
InfoEngine provides data and integration capabilities to access Windchill data, remote Windchill systems and non-Windchill data and services through adapters. InfoEngine components can be used in different software and hardware configurations to meet your business requirements for accessing, managing, and presenting data from different information systems.
