Guidelines for Backward Navigation Guidelines for deciding whether to allow backward navigation in your workflow process include: The backward navigation feature does not undo the effect of the workflow process. Backward navigation only modifies the current step counter to point to a previous step. The workflow configuration must make sure the segment of the workflow process that can be repeated by the backward navigation feature is idempotent. That is, acts as if used only one time, even if it is used multiple times. Methods of a Synthetic Event Table 23 describes methods of a synthetic event. Table 22. Backward and Forward Navigation with Workflow Modes Workflow Mode Supported Workflow Mode Not Supported Modes that are supported with backward and forward navigation include: Interactive Flow 7.0 Flow Modes that are not supported with backward and forward navigation include: Service Flow Long Running Flow Table 23. Methods of a Synthetic Event Synthetic Event Method Description FrameEventMethodWFNext Moves the end user forward in the interactive workflow process by using an applet. You can also give the method name a prefix of BF, as in FrameEventMethodWFBFxxxx. Use this optional BF prefix to define backward and forward behavior of the synthetic event. A synthetic event with this prefix can be used to resume a workflow process from a step that is different from the current step at which the workflow is waiting. EventMethodWFNext Operates the same as FrameEventMethodWFNext, except navigation is through the business component. FrameEventMethodWFBack EventMethodWFBack Moves the user backward in the interactive workflow process.

Options for Developing a Workflow Process About the Workflow Mode Property Siebel Business Process Framework: Workflow Guide Version 8.1, Rev A 133 Defining a Synthetic Event Button for Next and Back Events This topic describes how to define a synthetic event button for next and back events. To define a synthetic event button for next and back events 1 In Siebel Tools, identify a view to which a user interact step must navigate the end user. 2 Define a Next button or a Back button on an applet where the event is called. The button must be exposed in the applet that is based on the primary business component that is associated with the business object defined for the workflow process. For example, if the workflow process is based on the Service Request business object, and if the view displays activities associated with a service request, then the button must be exposed in the applet that is based on the Service Request business component. In this example, if the button is exposed in the applet that is based on the Activities business component, then the synthetic event button does not work.

    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.
