Configure Components For Flow Screens

  • Make your custom Lightning components available to flow screens in the Cloud Flow Designer by implementing the lightning:availableForFlowScreens interface.
  • Next, add a design resource to your component bundle.

    It contains attributes that are available for admins to edit in the Cloud Flow Designer.
  • Header and Footer is optional. If we want custom header or footer we can uncheck the check box
