 1.2.6 Activating the Start Event and Setting Up Type Linkage for the Process


If a user starts a process in the portal using the start application, he or she fills out a form and sends it to the next processor. The start application creates a process object and saves the data that the user entered to the process object. The process object triggers the event TRIGGERED for class CL_HRASR00_WF_PROCESS_OBJECT.

This part lesson enables the workflow template ZTWS to react to this event in the system client in which it is used.

Note Note

You must perform the type linkage in all clients in which you want to use your workflow template.
