8 In the Simulate toolbar, click Simulate Next to execute the highlighted step. 9 Continue clicking Simulate Next until the last step finishes. As you step through the workflow process, examine results of each step in the Watch window until the workflow process finishes. For more information, see “Using the Watch Window” on page 199 . 10 If the workflow process does not execute as expected, then correct the problem, and then restart the simulation at Step 6 . For more information, see “Troubleshooting Problems That Occur During Simulation” on page 209 . 11 (Optional) Examine test results in the Siebel client. If your workflow process manipulates record data, you might be able to examine test results in the Siebel client. For an example, see “Testing the Workflow Process” on page 262 . 12 Close the Simulator window. After the last step of the workflow process executes, the simulation automatically ends. You can also use the Stop Simulation button to halt the simulation before the last step executes.

Siebel Business Process Framework: Workflow Guide Version 8.1, Rev A Testing a Workflow Process Process of Testing a Workflow 206 Guidelines for Using the Process Simulator Guidelines when using the Process Simulator include: In the Siebel client, if the workflow process does not contain a user interact step, then do not navigate or click UI elements while using the Process Simulator. If you must navigate in the Siebel client, then it might be necessary to close the Siebel client and Siebel Tools, then open Siebel Tools to rerun the Simulator. In Siebel Tools, do not navigate outside of the Process Designer while the Process Simulator is running. After the Siebel client launches, it might be necessary to ALT+TAB back to Siebel Tools to proceed with the simulation. You can use the Process Designer to make changes to step properties, then return to the Process Simulator to test the workflow process. To make changes to step properties, first stop the Process Simulator, then restart the simulation after changes are made. You can hide the Object Explorer and the Properties window to better view your work in Siebel Tools. You can also resize the Siebel Tools window so that it covers only a part of the visible display area. If a wait step is defined in seconds, then the Workflow Process Simulator simulates a wait period. However, if the unit of time is defined in minutes or greater, then the Simulator simply moves on to the next step. It is not necessary for a workflow process to be active in order to run it in the Process Simulator. The simulator ignores activation date, expiration date, and status. Simulating an Interactive Workflow Process If using the process simulator with an interactive workflow process, then you must perform some actions in the Siebel client while the simulator is running.

    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.
