Events in Workflow

What are Events?

Events are actions that occur in the system and that acts as trigger point
for any workflow. Eg. Sales order creation. is an event.

Eg; Consider a scenario where any sales order after creationi subject to
approval from superior. So here a workflow comes into play.The workflow needs to
start whenever a Sales order is created. The business object BUS2032 is
associated to sales order creation. It has event CREATED. So the trigger point
or ” START EVENTS ” in the workflow is the BUS2032 ’s event CREATED.

Then bind the event to the workflow so the data flows from event to the
Workflow. eg: Sales order is created. So for the workflow to proceed it’ll need
sales order details. With binding the respective values is mapped ito the
workflow container.

Then activate the linkage once you are through the workflow creation. This is
important as after this only the workflow will listen for the event, in the
sense that after this only the workflow is triggerred on the event.This is
critical also as each active link adds to system load considerably and too many
workflows in the test environment can bring the system down. So careful.
Deactivte once test is over and workflow is no longer used.
