Zynk Workflow Documentation

This article will give an overview of how the tasks in the Developer connector can be used within a workflow, for example to automate the build process for Visual Studio projects, or to perform automated tests against your website.

Build Project

The Build Project task can be used to build a single project created in Visual Studio.

As an example we will build a project from the ‘SampleApp.SampleProject.csproj’ file using the following settings:

The result of the task will be that the SampleApp.SampleProject.csproj project is built to a dll file.

Build Solution

The Build Project task can be used to build a solution created in Visual Studio.

As an example we will build a solution from the ‘SampleApp.sln’ file using the following settings:

The result of the task will be that the SampleApp.sln solution is built to an exe file.

Line Of Code Counter Example

The Line Of Code Counter task can be used to count the lines of code in a solution created in Visual Studio.

As an example we will count the lines of code in the SampleApp solution using the following settings:

The Link Checker task can be used to check a web page for broken links.As an example we will check the links on the home page of zynk.com using the following settings:

The results of the task will be saved to the link_check_results.xml file.

Ping Host Example

The Ping Host task can be used to send a ping to a web server to check if it is responding. It is a condition task, so you can add sub-tasks to it which will run depending on what the result of the ping was. For example you could use the send email task to send an email notification if a website has gone down.

As an example we will ping zynk.com and run the sub-tasks if the ping fails using the following settings:

Validate Resource Example

The Validate Resource task can be used to check the markup validity of a web document.As an example we will validate the zynk.com home page using the following settings:

The results of the task will be saved to the validation_result.html file.
