Wizard design method — Create simple inbound or outbound integrations in a few steps with the wizard, which guides your setup with appropriate options based on the data flow.
Classic design method — Create integrations by building an integration system and then configuring its components with the Configure Enterprise Interface task. This approach involves more steps, but gives you additional flexibility.
