To add a new block to a playbook, drag the half-circle icon attached to any block on the canvas. Release your mouse to create a new empty block connected to the originating block with an arrow.

When you place a new block on the editor, a set of playbook types appears for you to select:

Playbook type Description

Playbook Run an existing playbook inside your current playbook. See Run other playbooks inside your playbook using the classic playbook editor.
API Perform an action by making an API call. See Set container parameters in using the API block.
Filter Filter the results of the previous block. For example, you can separate items that have a specific severity and perform a different set of actions on those items. See Use filters to separate artifacts before further processing with the classic playbook editor.
Decision Make a decision and perform different actions depending on the results of the previous block. For example, you can blacklist all destination IPs that belong to a specific country. See Use decisions to send artifacts to a specific downstream action with the classic playbook editor.
Format Format the results of the previous block. For example, you can gather data, format that data in a specific way, and send an email. Customize the format of your playbook content using the classic playbook editor.
Prompt Require a user to take action before proceeding to the next block. See Require user input to continue running the playbook using the classic playbook editor.
