Workflow Send Protocol
The Workflow Send Protocol process is a sample workflow process that demonstrates receiving, sending, and acknowledging event messages. Depending on your requirements, you can copy or customize this process to accommodate your organization's specific needs.
The Workflow Send Protocol process receives an event message from a subscription, sends the event message to the inbound agent specified in the subscription, waits to receive an acknowledgement if required, and also sends an acknowledgement if required. You can use the process on one system to send a message to another system, for example, and you can also use the same process on the second system to send the acknowledgement message back to the first system.
The Workflow Send Protocol workflow consists of one process, the Workflow Event Protocol process. This process is launched when it receives an event message from an event subscription.
You can start the Workflow Send Protocol workflow by any of the following methods:
- Raise the Workflow Send Protocol event from the Raise event page. Enter a unique event key, and enter any valid XML document as the event data. A predefined subscription sends the event message to the Workflow Event Protocol process. See: Raising Events and Workflow Send Protocol Events.
- The process can also be started when an agent receives the Workflow Send Protocol event from an external source. A predefined subscription sends the event message to the Workflow Event Protocol process. See: Workflow Send Protocol Events.
- Define your own subscription to send any event you choose to the Workflow Event Protocol process. In the subscription, specify the workflow item type as WFSNDPRT and the workflow process name as WFEVPRTC. Ensure that you either use the default rule function or include send processing in your custom rule function to send the event to the workflow. The Workflow Event Protocol process starts when the subscription is executed and the process receives the event message. See: To Define an Event Subscription.
