Wait Step and Global Time Calculations on page 176 Local Code Parameter and Data Format on page 177 For more information, see Siebel Global Deployment Guide . Defining a Workflow Process to Function in a Multilingual Environment To define a workflow process to function correctly in a language other than the base language, be sure your database is capable of handling Multilingual Lists Of Values (MLOV) for the type of non base language. For example, if you must modify a workflow to use FRA and the base language is ENU, then be sure that List of Values entries exist for the FRA language type. Defining a workflow to function in a multilingual environment 1 In the Siebel client, navigate to the Administration-Data screen, then the List of Values view. 2 Run the following query: Type = "WF_*" . 3 Run the MLOV upgrade utility to make sure the database is capable of handling a multilingual list of values. For more information, see Configuring Siebel Business Applications . 4 In the List of Values list, make sure the Active flag is set. Literal Values in a Dynamic Picklist Because a literal value is language dependent, a workflow process that references a literal value becomes language dependent and cannot be run in a multilingual environment. A literal value in a dynamic picklist potentially contains content that is created by the end user at run-time. Because these values are content based rather than metadata or LOV based, the makeup of this content is variable and, therefore, cannot be predictably interpreted by the workflow. For more information, see “Deployment of a Workflow Process in a Multilingual Environment” on page 214 and Siebel Global Deployment Guide .

Siebel Business Process Framework: Workflow Guide Version 8.1, Rev A Options for Developing a Workflow Process Defining a Workflow Process for a Multilingual Environment 176 Expressions in a Multilingual Environment A workflow process uses the Display value to fetch records from tables. In a multilingual deployment, data in the tables is stored in Language Independent Code (LIC). To run a workflow in a multilingual environment, use the LookupValue function to fetch the LIC based on the Display value. Decision Point Example Assume a decision point compares Account Status to Active. The Account Status field is bounded by the Account Status picklist. You can set the Compare To property to Expression, and set the Expression property to the following code: [Account Status] = LookupValue ("ACCOUNT_STATUS", "Active") Business Service Example Assume a business service step calls the Outbound Communications Manager to send an email message to Expense Approver . The Recipient Group argument is bounded by the Comm Recipient Group picklist. You can set the Type property to Expression, and set the Value property to the following code: LookupValue ("COMM_RECIP_SRC", "Comm Employee") For more information on globalization, see Siebel Global Deployment Guide .

    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.
