Introducing Cloud Functions

Introducing Cloud Functions

Hello App Creators,

Greetings from Zoho Creator!

We are happy to inform you about a new feature in Zoho Creator called Cloud Functions . They are functions which are executed serverless, supported only by Creator's infrastructure, and hence the name Cloud Functions. The new cloud functions support two languages: Java and Node.js.

This feature will be available under the Functions section of the Workflows module. Once these functions have been configured and written, they can be called from any of your workflows using Deluge. Data types and return types between Deluge and Java have been mapped, including appropriate error handling.
