Wait Step and Global Time Calculations Types of wait steps include: An absolute wait, which is a wait period governed solely by the duration that is defined. For example, an absolute wait that is set for 30 minutes waits 30 minutes from the time the wait is initiated by a wait step. A service calendar wait, which is not absolute. For example, a service calendar wait can be set to begin at 6 P.M., but if the service hours for the organization are 9 A.M. to 6 P.M., then the wait does not initiate until 9 A.M. the next morning. Therefore, it runs from 9 to 9:30 instead of 6 to 6:30. Time Zone Setting with a Wait Step If a workflow process is executing as a server task, then you must shut down, and then restart the Workflow Process Manager after making changes to the Time Zone user preference for the SADMIN user. The changes only go into effect after the Workflow Process Manager is restarted, which is important if you are implementing UTC, because it can be necessary for you to set the Time Zone user preference. Relations between the type of wait step and time zone settings include:

Options for Developing a Workflow Process Defining a Workflow Process for a Multilingual Environment Siebel Business Process Framework: Workflow Guide Version 8.1, Rev A 177 An absolute wait is not affected by time zone settings, including server and user time zone preferences. Use UTC with the database server. For more information, see Siebel Global Deployment Guide . A service calendar wait step requires a time zone for delay computations. In this case, the time zone for the current user is used. Local Code Parameter and Data Format The Workflow Process Manager (WfProcMgr) server component, similar to other server components, contains a parameter named Local Code which defines formats for data, such as dates, times, numbers, and currency. Note the following logic: If a workflow process runs within the Workflow Process Manager, then the Workflow Process Manager respects the Local Code setting and formats the data appropriately. If the workflow process communicates with an external application or writes data to a file, then date, time, number, and currency data is passed according to the format that is defined in Local Code.

    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.
