I love this Monika
Great combination of products and really extending this use-case to make something very cool!
For those interested in how this is done in the integration part - I created a FlowService to provide the historical data
This Flow Services
takes in input of a start date, end date, and amount of water your tree needs.
It then loops through each day
Using the REST connector I previously created it gets the rainfall measures for that day.
Reuses the FlowService to sum the rainfall amount across a day
Subtracts the rainfall amount from the amount the tree actually needs to get the net difference
For simplicity, builds a CSV line for the data point (which can be ingested into ARIS Process Mining).
I then enabled this as a webhook which can be called externally, that just returns the total data values as a CSV
This could have used the ARIS Process Mining Connector, but using the CSV keeps this easier for people to understand and also allows me to take the data easily into Power BI (or other analytics tools), like this:
Everybody else - you still have sometime to submit your own solutions!
The goal of the iPaaS Puzzle series that we are doing for the next 4 weeks as a trial is to help you hone your webMethods skills with little challenges for you to solve and learn from others who also tackled the Puzzle. We do these check ins on Fridays with our iPaaS Puzzle Show!
Please join us tomorrow for our iPaaS Puzzle Shows:

Just looked into the puzzle a bit more and found
Bright Sky - Free JSON API for DWD’s open weather data. for the German weather service DWD aka Deutscher Wetter Dienst.
That looks promising! I’ll keep you posted!
@anela.osmanovic Thought about your solution and may be 48 hours would be an even better timeframe. How easy is it to make it a parameter that you change every time?
I learned that you can derive longitude and latitude from Google Maps URL
That is the URL for the highest mountain in Germany the Zugspitze:
I know they have a weather station up there
Bright Sky API Documentation page you can enter the parameters for the query call.
Had to play around with the date parameter until I found one with some Precipitation:
In my API call to
I declare all the parameters needed: date, last_date, lat, lon, and fill them with the same data.
The API Input call looks great:
The Output looks good too, alas where are my parameters like Precipitation or Temperature?
I tried to get a Flowservice going as in Dave’s example from above, but it was getting too late. Solution tomorrow I guess
Hello iPaaS Puzzle Fans,
We had our first iPaaS Puzzle Show earlier today. What I really loved was the walkthrough by Anela
@anela.osmanovic of her solution. It made me aware where my solution is lacking. Which is a great insight. You learn much better and more when you have wrangled with problem yourself. It also sticks around longer if you struggle to solve something.
I also loved Monika’s
@Monika introduction to the extension into Process Mining. Love when we can help break down silos between different departments and products. Check out the recording!
It is of great benefit to you to sharpen your webMethods skills by solving these iPaaS Puzzles. Boy do we have a great
