Typically, a workflow process is associated with a single business object. Within the context of these data layer objects, data is generated or updated as the workflow executes. The main types of data a workflow manipulates include:■Business component data■Process property data■Siebel Common Object dataA process property can be thought of as a local variable that is active during execution of the instance of the workflow process. The process property can be used as input and output to the various steps in a workflow. A set of predefined process properties is automatically generated when you define the workflow. The Process Instance Id is one example of a predefined process property. For more information, see “About the Process Property” on page 47.

Typical business services that are predefined include Assignment Manager requests, notification through the Communications Server, server requests, and integration requests from Siebel EAI. Custom business services can be written in Siebel VB or eScript. If defining a business service step, then you must define the business service, the business service method, and input arguments and output arguments. Input arguments are passed in a process property, business component data, or a literal value.
