Similarly siebel workflow expects an output argument

Similarly, Siebel Workflow expects an output argument of a step in a workflow process that passes out a hierarchy to send it out as a child of the output property set. Siebel Workflow locates the child by examining the Type field of the child. The string in the Type field must match the name for the Output Argument, as defined in the output argument applet of the step. After Siebel Workflow finds such a child, the data is copied into the indicated destination process property. However, the Type field on the incoming hierarchy is discarded, and instead the name of the process property overwrites the Type field. To summarize, when passing a hierarchy into and out of a step, the Type field of the top level of the data is used as the name of the argument. NOTE: It is recommended the Type field of the top level of a hierarchical argument not contain data. Table 9.

Siebel Business Process Framework: Workflow Guide Version 8.1, Rev A Environment for Developing a Workflow Process About the Process Property 58 Passing a Process Property by Reference A subprocess that modifies a large amount of data must copy a large amount of data through input and output arguments. This situation can negatively affect the performance and scalability. If you can avoid unnecessary copying of data, then you can achieve improvements in performance and scalability. Pass By Reference is a feature that allows you to avoid passing a large property set by passing just a pointer to the property set. You can use Pass By Reference for a workflow process by using a sub process step. For more information, see “Pass By Reference Feature for a Business Service” on page 71 . Passing a Process Property to an Error-Workflow Process You can pass more than just a system defined process property to an error-workflow process. The following conditions apply when a process property is passed to an error-workflow process: To pass the original instance of a workflow process to a process property that is defined by the user to the error workflow, you must explicitly redefine those user-defined process properties in your error workflow, giving them the same name and data type. To pass a property set from the original workflow process to the error workflow, you must define a common user-defined hierarchy process property in the original workflow and in the error workflow, then use this common hierarchy property to pass the property set. To get the name of the original workflow process, you must define a common user-defined process property in the original workflow and in the error workflow, then pass the original name for the workflow through this common user-defined process property.

    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.
