example, you can define a decision condition that is based on the value of a priority field so that if the priority is equal to high , then the workflow pursues a branch that leads to an action that sends an email to a vice president. However, if the priority is equal to medium , then the email is sent to an engineer. Steps of a workflow where a decision condition can be defined include: Start step Decision point Wait step User interact step Table 15 describes example workflow processes you can view that use a decision condition. Defining a Branch Connector A branch connector is a type of connector in a workflow process that can contain a decision condition. Conditional logic is defined on a connector that emanates out of the step, and not on the step itself. Typically, a branch connector emanates from a start step, decision point, wait step, or user interact step. Table 15. Examples of Workflow Processes that Use a Decision Condition Conditional Logic Work Performed Location An IF/THEN decision condition, where flow is determined by the Revenue field in the Opportunity business component being greater than $10,000. Insert an activity for the parent opportunity. “Defining a Decision Condition for the Decision Point” on page 259 A CASE statement, where one of several different branches is pursued, depending on the value of the Priority field in the Service Request business component. Insert an activity with a value of a commit time that is based on the result of the CASE statement. “Example of Defining a Workflow Process That Manages Creation of a Service Request” on page 292

Steps and Connectors of a Workflow Process Defining a Decision Condition Siebel Business Process Framework: Workflow Guide Version 8.1, Rev A 93 To define a branch connector 1 Drag, then drop a connector from the palette to the canvas, connecting the decision point with the new next step. Make sure that the connector is correctly attached. For more information, see “Diagramming a Workflow Process” on page 122 . 2 Make sure the connector you added in Step 1 is still chosen in the Process Designer. 3 In the Properties window, enter or modify the connector name. The connector name must be unique to the workflow process. If it is not unique, then you cannot commit the record. 4 Choose a connector Type. In most cases, this value is Condition or Default. If you define a decision condition on the connector, then choose Condition. If the connector is used as an exit route, then choose Default. Other values can also be set. For more information, see Table 86 on page 459 . If you define multiple branches on this step, then, for caution information, see “Defining Multiple Branches on a Single Step” on page 93 . 5 Enter comments. 6 Define the decision condition, if necessary.

    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.
