The workflow provides a rich selection of tools, categorized into three types:

  • Built-in Tools: Tools provided by Dify.

  • Custom Tools: Tools imported or configured via the OpenAPI/Swagger standard format.

  • Workflows: Workflows that have been published as tools.

Before using built-in tools, you may need to authorize the tools.

If built-in tools do not meet your needs, you can create custom tools in the Dify menu navigation -- Tools section.

You can also orchestrate a more complex workflow and publish it as a tool.

Configuring a tool node generally involves two steps:

  1. Authorizing the tool/creating a custom tool/publishing a workflow as a tool.

  2. Configuring the tool's input and parameters.

For more information on how to create custom tools and configure them, please refer to the Tool Configuration Guide.
