Creating a New workflow using WFSTD:
Download the Standard Workflow for creating a new workflow item type:
To download the workflow file we can download using wfload or from Oracle Workflow Builder.
File –> Open –> Database –> Please give Apps user credentials. It usually takes time to load all the workflows.
Select Standard from the list of workflows and press OK button.
When the WFSTD is Loaded then save on your desktop as STANDARD.wft:
Right click on Standard and create a new Item Type
The Item Type Internal name can have at the max of 8 Characters:
There are 3 types of Persistence’s as Temporary, Permanent and Synchronization.
The access levels are important to modify the workflow and can be set at workflow builder help.
Now save the Workflow file as XAOATEST.wft on your local desktop:
Once a new Item Type is created then a new process needs to be created where the logic needs to go in:
We need to create a new Runnable Process so that we can call it from PLSQL/Form/OAF/Java. Under a Process there can be any number of sub process depending upon the complexity of the workflow logic that needs to be implemented.
