A component is an implementation of a type of data activity in a workspace. For example, the Google Analytics connector is a component that extracts data from Google Analytics using its REST API.

A configuration is the concrete application of a component. After storing the component’s necessary credentials and running the programming scripts in the component’s configuration settings page, you will be able to either extract, process, or load the data.
Read more: about the configuration here.
This refers to when a configuration is executed. It has a finite life-cycle: a component is loaded with settings from the configuration and executed in Meiro Integrations.
Learn more: about activity details please refer to this article.
A type of component that extracts the data from a data source and makes it available for other components to use.
Refer: to user documentation to learn more about the components.
Continue on Failure
You can set any configuration in a workspace to Continue on Failure. The Continue on Failure feature permits the workspace to continue running even if one or more of its configurations encounter an error. When a configuration has an error in running, the user will be notified via the email address that they have saved in their workspace’s Schedule settings.

Data flow is the area in your workspace where you can view the components that you have created. You can organize your components and create a workflow with them by dragging the grey arrows (or edges as they are called) from one component to the other component that you want to load your data into.
Data In/ Out
The bucket Data In/ Out is a part of the configuration.
Data In refers to all the configurations that are passing data to the current configuration. It can have multiple filters - in default all files are loaded from the previous configuration ("*") and you can change it at any time.
Data Out shows the output of the configuration.

An instance refers to the location of your project on Meiro Integrations. A web link to your project’s instance would look like this: www.project_name.meiro.io. Each instance may consist of more than one workspace depending on the complexity and structure of the project.
A type of component that loads the data to the data destinations and delivers it.
Read more: about loaders here.
A type of component that processes or transforms the data: Command Line Interface, Python, R, SQL, Geocoding, etc.
