component, if there is no business component record context, then it is not possible to start the workflow, and attempting to start the workflow using the BusComp Query event fails. Therefore, a run-time event with the possibility of returning no results cannot be used to start a workflow. Repeat Usage of a Run-time Event You cannot use the same run-time event more than one time within a given workflow process. About the User Event While a run-time event acts on a workflow process from within the application object manager, a user event is internal to the workflow. A user event initiates and resumes a long-running workflow process in the Workflow Process Manager (WFProcMgr) server component. NOTE: A user event can be used only in a long-running workflow process. A long-running workflow resumes on Workflow Process Manager. The behavior cannot be modified in order to cause a long- running workflow to resume on a custom workflow server component. While a run-time event can be used in a workflow process that runs within a single user session, a user event is for use in a long-running workflow that spans multiple users. A user event can be used to start a workflow when the user event is attached to a start step, or to resume an instance of workflow that is waiting when the user event is attached to a step that can receive an input argument. A user event can also bring data into the instance of a workflow which can contain user data. This data comes in the form of the payload for the user event. User Event Generation with the Workflow User Event Service Business Service A user event requires use of the Workflow User Event Service business service in order to communicate with the Workflow Process Manager. A user event is an event that is internal to Siebel Workflow which is used to resume a long-running workflow process from the Workflow Process Manager. To generate a user event, you call the Workflow User Event Service business service. NOTE: A long-running workflow process must use only a user event, and not a run-time event. The Workflow User Event Service business service is a standard Siebel business service that can be used wherever a Siebel business service can be used. You call the Workflow User Event Service business service by defining a business service step that calls it. The User Event business service can be called by supported techniques, such as scripting, COM interfaces, and Java interfaces, which is the recommended way to communicate externally with a workflow process.

Siebel Business Process Framework: Workflow Guide Version 8.1, Rev A Options for Developing a Workflow Process About Events 162 A typical example occurs when a 7.0 workflow, an interactive workflow, or a service workflow initiates a user event. A business service step calls the Workflow User Event Service business service to communicate to a long-running workflow that is running in the background.

    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.
