Flow Ref Component Reference

Use a flow reference component to send a Mule message to another flow. When processing reaches the flow reference component, Mule sends the message to the flow whose name matches the name specified in this component. A flow reference can route messages to any type of flow within the same application. 

Configuration

  1. Place the flow reference component on the canvas at the point where you want the current flow to call another flow.

  2. Open the flow reference component’s properties pane to configure it. Optionally, give the flow reference a unique Display Name. At minimum, select a Flow name from the drop-down menu to select another flow within your application to which you would like to send your message.
