Architecture of a Workflow Process About the Architecture of a Workflow Process Siebel Business Process Framework: Workflow Guide Version 8.1, Rev A 33 Table 4 describes how the business service determines where the workflow process is run. How Siebel Workflow is Run in the Workflow Process Manager Server Component A workflow process can be executed in the background by using a Workflow Process Manager server component that is configured and optimized to run the Workflow Process Manager business service. The Workflow Process Manager server component acts as the object manager to run the workflow process, including application logic within the workflow process. The Workflow Process Manager accepts the process name in the following ways: Through the Process Name component parameter. For example, when starting a server task from Server Manager or (Repeating) Server Component Requests. Through the Encoded Args component parameter. For example, when a request is submitted from the Workflow Monitor Agent business service or the Server Requests business service. If a workflow policy starts a workflow process, then the Workflow Monitor Agent typically uses Encoded Input Arguments to pass input arguments to the Workflow Process Manager. However, setting Encoded Input Arguments in the Component Request Parameters applet fails because it is not in a format that can be recognized by the Workflow Process Manager server component.

    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.
