information, see “Making a Workflow Process Editable” on page 120 . Data That Is Available for Configuration Because the Process Designer is in Siebel Tools, data objects are available for use as you design your workflow process. A change in the repository data is immediately available for use in a workflow without the requirement to compile the SRF. You can use configuration data, such as a business component field or other repository information, while you are building your workflow. For example, if a List of Values (LOV), such as Account Status, contains values of Gold, Silver, and Bronze, then you can use a newly added LOV in a decision condition of your workflow process as you define it. For another example, if you add a field to a business component, then that new field is readily available for use in the Process Designer. The type of data that is not available for use in designing a workflow process is run-time data, such as an account name or a ZIP code, and other transactional data. To use run-time data while you are building a workflow process, make the data available through a process property. If necessary, you can also hard code run-time data into your workflow by using an unbounded picklist. For more information, see “About the Process Property” on page 47 .

Environment for Developing a Workflow Process About the Process Property Siebel Business Process Framework: Workflow Guide Version 8.1, Rev A 47 About the Process Property This topic describes information about process properties. It includes the following topics: Process Property and the Property Set on page 48 Arguments of the Step of a Workflow Process on page 49 Multi Value Property Window on page 50 Process Properties That Are Predefined on page 54 Manipulating a Process Property on page 57 A process property is a container that stores a value that the workflow process retrieves from the database or derives before or during processing. You can use the value that is stored in a process property in the following ways: Pass information between objects. For example, between steps in a workflow process, between a workflow process and a subprocess, or between a workflow and a business service. The process property is defined as an input or output argument for a workflow step. Base a decision branch on the value in a process property. Use the value in a process property in an expression. When a workflow process finishes, the final value of each process property is available as a separate output argument that can be passed to another object. For more information about: How a process property is defined in Siebel Tools, see “Defining a Process Property for a Workflow Process” on page 124 An example that uses a process property, see “Example of Defining a Workflow Process That Traverses a Record Set to Close Service Requests That Are Obsolete” on page 264 Arguments that are used with a process property, see “Fields and Arguments of Process Properties” on page 462 A detailed description of property sets, see Integration Platform Technologies: Siebel Enterprise Application Integration

    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.
