Examples of Using a Business Service with a Workflow Process Example of Externalizing Properties when Using a Business Service Siebel Business Process Framework: Workflow Guide Version 8.1, Rev A 317 This technique relies on a file that has a particular name, and that is available for reading on each Siebel Server. Otherwise the business service fails and Siebel Workflow throws an error at that business service step, which is the required behavior. For a business service where the script is added to the Service_PreInvokeMethod event, it is expected that an input argument named ExternalSystem is defined, and that the value for the argument matches the XML tag name of the child of the root element in the file. This script sets the child elements of the parent that resides at the second level, that is, the child of the root element, of the file as input arguments. Benefits of Using the Externalizing Properties Technique Benefits of using the externalizing properties technique for certain business services include: Makes transparent the migration of repository workflow processes between development, test, and production Siebel instances. That is, workflows no longer require changes during migration between various Siebel instances. Supports current business services as well as future requirements. Supports usage scenarios of a business service that is used in various workflow processes.

    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.
