except that the version for the workflow is incremented by one, the Status is In Progress rather than Completed, and the workflow is editable. The revised workflow replaces the original workflow. To revise a workflow process 1 Locate the workflow process you must modify. For more information, see “Locating a Workflow Process in the Workflow Processes Object List Editor” on page 43 .

For more information, see “About the Process Property” on page 47 . 3 Right-click the new workflow process, then choose Edit Workflow Process. 4 Modify this new version, as necessary. Defining a New Workflow Process If you cannot locate an existing workflow process that meets your requirements, then you can define a new one. For an example, see “Defining the New Workflow Process” on page 256 . Naming a Workflow Process When naming a workflow process, the combination of workflow process name and version must be unique. That is, two workflow processes can contain the same name as long as their version numbers are unique. Externalizing Workflow Properties When developing a workflow process, it is recommended that you define properties for the workflow that are externalized and that are not hard coded. Hard coding a property in a workflow requires you to change the definitions when the workflow is deployed between environments. For example, if a workflow sends an email to a list of customers and the property is hard coded with the customer list, then the workflow does not execute correctly in the production environment. You must make sure such input arguments are read dynamically. For more information, see “Example of Externalizing Properties when Using a Business Service” on page 316 . Making a Workflow Process Editable The canvas color in the Process Designer indicates whether the workflow process is editable. For more information, see “About the Process Designer” on page 44 . To make a workflow process editable 1 Make sure the workflow process is either checked out or is locked by the developer who is currently attempting to edit the workflow process. 2 Make sure the project that is defined in the Project property for the workflow process is locked. 3 If the workflow process is a seed workflow, then make a copy of the workflow and edit the copy. For more information, see “Examining Seed Workflow Processes” on page 111 .

    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.
