displays the entity relationship diagram of four workflow policy components for a service request. The diagram illustrates each of the components, their relations to one another, and the columns that are of interest. Service request is the primary workflow policy component, and the other three components are joined to it either directly or indirectly. Table Monitoring with a Workflow Policy A workflow policy can only monitor Siebel database tables. You cannot use a workflow policy to monitor a database table that is external to Siebel. CAUTION: Do not monitor the S_DOCK_TXN_LOG table or table columns of Enterprise Integration Manager (EIM). An EIM table is prefixed with EIM_, or ends with _IF. Most tables can be monitored except S_DOCK_TXN_LOG and EIM tables. Figure 24. Example of an Entity Relationship Diagram for a Workflow Policy

Defining a Custom Workflow Policy About Workflow Policies Siebel Business Process Framework: Workflow Guide Version 8.1, Rev A 327 Structure of a Workflow Policy A rule contains an IF/THEN structure that provides the basic underlying logic of a workflow policy. The structure of a rule is: If the conditions are true, then an action occurs The rule contains a workflow policy condition and a workflow policy action. If the conditions of the workflow policy are met, then an action is called. Figure 25 illustrates the parts of an example workflow policy. Parts that make up a typical workflow policy include: 1 Workflow Policy. A workflow policy is composed of workflow policy conditions and workflow policy actions. A workflow policy, based on the structure of the workflow policies rule, represents rules that the database monitors. 2 Workflow Policy Condition. A workflow policy condition is called: a situation that causes something to happen. 3 Workflow Policy Action. A workflow policy action is an action that is called by fulfilling a workflow policy condition. 4 Workflow Policy Program. A workflow policy program is a predefined program that provides arguments for the workflow policy action. 5 Duration . A duration is the amount of time for which workflow policy conditions exist in order for the conditions of the policy to be met. For more information, see “Planning the Workflow Policy and Workflow Policy Conditions” on page 334 . NOTE: The functionality that is available with a workflow policy can be supported by using a workflow process. It is recommended that a workflow policy be used to start a workflow process. Use a workflow process to define an action. Figure 25. Parts of an Example of a Workflow Policy

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
