If the input property set contains a child whose property set Type field contains a string that matches the name of the hierarchical process property for the workflow process, then hierarchical data type process properties that are marked In or In/Out are initialized. If such a match is found, then the matching child and everything below the child in the input property set is copied into the process property. Multiple variables can be passed into SQL Program Arguments. For more information, see “Passing Multiple Variables to SQL Program Arguments” on page 479 .

Manipulating Data Passing Data to and from a Workflow Process Siebel Business Process Framework: Workflow Guide Version 8.1, Rev A 183 Passing an Output From a Workflow Process It is possible that a workflow process that is started programmatically does not return an output. For example, an interactive workflow can be started programmatically, but because it can pause, the output from the call to start the workflow might reflect the state at an intermediate point. For this reason, only a workflow that is guaranteed to run to completion in one call, that is, a service workflow, can be expected to provide output in the output arguments of the call into the Workflow Process Manager business service. An output argument uses the same convention as an input argument. Simple workflow process properties, such as String, Number, and DateTime, that are marked Out or In/Out, appear as properties on the top level property set. Hierarchical process properties appear as children of the output property set. Hierarchical process properties can be located by examining the Type field of the child, which matches the name for the process property. Passing a Parameter from a Workflow Process to a Global Variable You can use a business service to access and pass a parameter from a workflow process to a global variable. If an update is made to a global variable by using a Batch Manager task, then each Batch Manager task is, in essence, a separate user session. Therefore, an update that is made to a global variable by using a Batch Manager task might not be visible to a subsequent Workflow Process Batch Manager task. For more information, see “Example of a Script That Accesses Parameters for a Workflow Process” on page 186 . Passing a Constant from a Workflow Policy Action into a Workflow Process You can use the Run Workflow Process program to pass a constant from a workflow policy action into a workflow process. To pass a constant from a workflow policy action into a workflow process 1 In Siebel Tools, navigate to the Workflow Policy Program OBLE, then query the Name property for Run Workflow Process. 2 Navigate to the Workflow Policy Program Arguments OBLE. 3 Add a new argument.

    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.
