This is not a tutorial for Node-RED. You should be familiar with Node-RED. We describe a very simple business case, an inquiry from item revision, but we hope it explains enough to use it as a starting point for own developments. Feel free to contact us for further questions ->

About Node-RED

Node-RED is a low-code programming tool for bringing together hardware devices, APIs and online services. It brings a browser-based flow editor that makes it easy to wire together flows by using a wide range of nodes in the palette.

Node-RED is Open Source and provided by the OpenJS Foundation. The flow-based programming was already invented in the 1970s by J. Paul Morrison. The first Node-RED project was started in 2013 as a side-project by two developers of the IBM’s Emerging Technology Services group.

Please note:

Node-RED is a very powerful and free tool to connect systems. There are nodes available for many different systems, hardware and software. Node-RED has some limitations, so for your business cases, please be aware of these. For complex use cases and a seamless integration with Infor and external applications, we still recommend Infor OS as the better choice. And please apologize, some of the screenshots contain German content. We are using German browser settings.
