start a workflow from an external system. The Workflow Process Manager server component provides APIs for using programmatic techniques to start a workflow. A script is raised by the Object Manager. A script can be associated with one of the following objects: application, applet, business component, and business service. Summary of Mechanisms for Starting a Workflow Process Table 18 summarizes the main uses and limitations for each of the mechanisms that are available to start a workflow process. Table 18. Uses and Limitations of Mechanisms for Starting a Workflow Process Starting Mechanism Uses Limitations Workflow Policy Uses include: You must detect and react to data changes made outside of the Object Manager. For example, by Siebel Remote or by Siebel EIM Limitations include: Making changes requires database downtime Relatively complex to define Event Uses include: You must implement a basic entry point for a workflow or a simple custom action You must avoid distributing the Siebel Repository File (SRF). For example, because of the burden created for mobile users Limitations include: Cannot directly respond to an event by scripting against the event object Can be more difficult to pass the event context to business logic Does not trap data changes made by non Object Manager components Script Uses include: You require flexibility to write a script directly in response to an event You require access to an applet event that is only exposed in Siebel Tools Limitations include: Changes must be distributed through a new Siebel Repository File (SRF) Does not detect data changes made by non Object Manager components. For a workflow, the script is implemented on a Siebel Tools Object Event.

When planning to build a workflow process, you can determine the decision logic that guides the flow of control within the process. To determine decision logic of a workflow process 1 Examine the business analysis work conducted thus far to identify what decision conditions, if any, are inherent in the business process. For more information, see “Overview of Objects That Are Used with a Workflow Process” on page 18 . 2 Map the requirements to the workflow process decision logic. For more information, see “Ways to Implement Decision Logic in a Workflow Process” on page 107 . Ways to Implement Decision Logic in a Workflow Process Table 19 describes some ways to implement decision logic in a workflow process. Table 19. Ways to Implement Decision Logic in a Workflow Process Type Description Uses Limitations Workflow Decision Point A step in a workflow process that arbitrates between one or more alternative branches in the flow of the workflow.

    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.
