Cells Flows makes it easy to automate your manual repetitive tasks in Cells.
From creating your own workflows to scheduling tasks or integrating with third-party tools, our customizable components help you to respond to events and take action automatically.

Cells Flows is sold as an Add-On to Cells Enterprise or Cells Connect.

Drag-and-connect actions in the browser

Cells Flows provides an intuitive drag-and-drop interface to create and manage jobs directly inside the Cells Console.

  • Customizable components (actions) can be chained together to take action in response to specific events or on a timely manner

  • Conditional queries and filters provide a “no-code” approach to pull data and to apply a sequence of actions based on the incoming data.

  • Variables, templates and scripts can be used to write complex jobs with their own parameters, providing deep access to Cells internals for the most advanced users.


Your creativity is the limit! See below a step-by-step guide (video) for creating a simple job.

Ready-made components

Cells Flows is bundled with a set of carefully-crafted, customizable actions that cover a wide-range of tasks. 

Simulate user actions on files and folders (copy, move, rename, delete…), create archives, update user-defined metadata like Tags.

Read/write files contents for custom processing or generating reports.

Read and transform Cells “identity management” objects (users, workspaces, roles, ACLs…) and listen to their custom events (user logged, public link created, etc...)

Interact with outside world by sending emails, calling webhooks, etc.

Template Jobs

Template jobs are an easy way to start with ready-to-use scenario, and to learn from them to create your owns. See some examples below:

Transparent Background: 
Purge old files
Find all files that were not modified since a given period, and either tag them or definitely remove them.
Extract textual contents
Use Apache Tika remote server to extract textual contents from PDF files for search engine indexation.
Take action at first connection
Detect each user very first connection to the platform, then perform an arbitrary action.

Integration with third-party tools

Cells Flows makes it a breeze to integrate Pydio Cells with third-party tools or services:

Integrate your own files processor via the server command-line interface. 

Use webhooks to call external services like IFTTT or Zapier using JSON format.

Upload/download files to/from other servers with FTP or HTTP.

Trigger programmed jobs from outside using Cells scheduler API.

Combine no-code approach...

Criteria-based filters provide an intuitive user interface to build specific conditions for filtering data or fetching it from Cells internal services. Conditions can be nested and combined with "AND/OR" operator.

Conditional filters can create "IF/ELSE" branches to decide when to apply a sequence of action.

... with advanced scripting

Filters, actions and queries parameters accept Template Variables, whose values can be computed dynamically at runtime based on the data coming from previous actions.

Template variables can be modified by functions, and some advanced actions support a scripting language to write your own piece of code!
