Table 106. Arguments of the GenerateEvent Method of the Workflow User Event Service Business Service Argument Description UserEventName The name of a user event is an agreement between the creator, which is an external entity, and the recipient, which is the workflow process. It includes no special significance, except that the incoming event name and the workflow instance definition must define exactly the same user event name in order to successfully communicate with each other. A user event name must be unique. It is recommended to name the event so that it reflects the business purpose it serves. For example, Event Transferring Send Order Confirmation from Vitira To Siebel V2 . CorrelationValue Used to match an incoming message with an instance of a workflow process by using business data, such as an order number. If a workflow communicates with an external entity, then the external entity might not be aware it is communicating with a workflow process. In such cases, it is difficult for the external entity to use a Siebel identifier, such as the instance Id for the workflow process, to identify the recipient. It is more convenient to use business data, such as an order number, to identify the recipient. The correlator serves this purpose. Correlation applies to a user event that reaches a long-running workflow, which can define a process property as a correlator. NOTE: Only one process property can be used as a correlator. <Value> (Payload) If the user event is generated, then the user can define data as payload. This data is delivered to the instance of a workflow process that receives the event. If the workflow is defined to wait for a user event, then the definition can define a process property to receive this payload data. The payload is a single value . Only one payload can be passed. NOTE: If your situation requires you to send complex or structured data, then it is recommended you use the XML converter to convert the data into an XML document, then pass the resulting XML string as the payload of the event. The receiving workflow process can then call the XML converter again to recover the original data structure.

    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.
