“About the Wait Step” on page 87 . For an example, see “Defining the New Workflow Process” on page 256 . 2 Open the Process Designer for the workflow process you defined in Step 1 , then define a workflow that resembles the workflow in the following figure. For more information, see “Overview of Workflow Process Steps” on page 65 , and “Diagramming a Workflow Process” on page 122 . 3 Click the Id Triggered connector, then use the Properties window to define values described in the following table. 4 Click the canvas, making sure no workflow process step or connector is chosen.

For more information, see “About the Process Property” on page 47 . To capture the ROW_ID of the activity, you define a process property, then use a wait step which can read a field from the child business component into the process property in the output argument for the wait step without modifying the underlying data. 6 Click the Get Activity Id step, then click the Output Arguments tab in the MVPW. 7 Right-click, choose New Record, then define a new record using values from the following table. For testing purposes, this step reads the ROW_ID of the activity, which is the Id field, into the ActionBCRowId% process property. No input arguments are defined for the wait step. 8 Validate, then simulate the workflow process. For more information, see “Process of Testing a Workflow” on page 202 . 9 Implement this technique in your production workflow. This example demonstrates how you can start a workflow process based on changes made to a child in a many to one relationship. It includes steps to test the technique. In a production environment, if it is not necessary to capture the ROW_ID of the child, then you can simply define the trigger of the run-time event on the connector that emanates from the start step, as described in Step 3 . Run-Time Event Usage with the Updated By Field If a step in a workflow process contains a run-time event with a processing mode that is defined to run locally to either start or resume a workflow, then the value in the Updated By field describes the end user who is currently logged into the application.

    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.
