CAUTION: A business service that is called from within a workflow process cannot include a browser script. A business service only works with a server script. If a business service with a browser script is executed from within a workflow process on the Siebel Server, then the business service fails. Defining a Business Service Step You define a business service step in the Process Designer in Siebel Tools. To define a business service step 1 Add a business service step to a workflow process. For more information, see “Adding a Step to a Workflow Process” on page 66 . 2 Make sure the step you added in Step 1 is still chosen in the Process Designer. 3 From the picklist of the Business Service Name property, pick the name of the business service to be called. The picklist contains the business services that are defined in Siebel Tools or the Siebel client. For more information about defining a custom business service, see Integration Platform Technologies: Siebel Enterprise Application Integration .

The choices available for this property depend on the business service you defined in Step 3 . 5 Make sure the business service step is chosen. 6 Use the MVPW to define input and output arguments. For more information, see “Defining an Argument of a Step in the MVPW” on page 53 . Making a Business Service Visible to a Workflow Process A business service object, which includes the business service, business service method, and business service method argument, contains Display Name and Hidden properties in Siebel Tools. For this object to be displayed in a picklist, the Hidden flag for the object must be set to FALSE. For example, the methods and arguments you define in your business service appear in the picklists in the Arguments list applets for the business service. By default, a business service that is defined in the Siebel client is not hidden. When you define a workflow process in Siebel Tools, the value that is defined for the Name property for a business services object is the value that is also displayed in the picklists. To make a business service visible to a workflow process 1 In Siebel Tools, in the Object Explorer, click Business Service. A list of business services that are predefined displays. 2 In the Business Services OBLE, click the business service you must modify. 3 In the Properties window, change the Hidden property to FALSE. 4 In the Object Explorer, expand the Business Service tree, then click Business Service Method. 5 In the Business Service Methods OBLE, click the method you must modify, then change the Hidden property to FALSE in the properties window.

    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.
