CAD Publisher Pipeline Editor

Centro pipelines are the essential force behind Centro's flexibility and strength. The Pipeline Editor is a drag and drop interface that allows authorized users to create and edit Centro pipelines.

Navigate to the Pipeline Editor by creating a new pipeline from the Pipeline Manager or editing a currently existing one.

A. Breadcrumb path

Use the breadcrumb to quickly navigate back to previous locations such as the Pipeline Manager.

B. Job Allocation Triggers

This lists the available Job Allocation Triggers. Use a trigger to start the definition of your pipeline.

To add a trigger to the pipeline: 

  1. Mouse over the trigger of choice.
  2. Once the trigger icon is askew, drag and drop it to the pipeline in the trigger landing area.
    Wait until the dashed line appears. This indicates the trigger landing area is ready to accept the trigger.


Only one trigger per pipeline is permitted.

C. Pipeline Trigger

This area shows the trigger being used in the pipeline.

Use the respective icons to edit or remove a trigger from the pipeline.

D. Job Actions

This lists all the available Job Actions available to use in the pipeline.

To add a job action to the pipeline:

  1. Drag and drop triggers and actions into the pipeline column. Wait until the dashed landing area appears before releasing the mouse button.

E. Pipeline Actions

  • The pipeline actions are listed in the order they are executed. 
  • Reorder the pipeline actions by dragging and dropping into a new location.


    Remember the order of your actions must make sense. For example, even though the pipeline editor allows it, you don't want to have your thumbnail PNG image uploaded to the Catalog before it's generated.

  • Edit, disable or remove a trigger or action by clicking on the appropriate button.


Remember to click the Save button when disabling/enabling or removing actions.

F. Editing and Finishing Buttons

    • Changing the order of actions
    • Deleting actions
