Overview of Required Setup Steps for the Standalone Version of Oracle Workflow
- 1. Set up the default Oracle Workflow user preferences for your entire enterprise using the Global Preferences web page. The Global Preferences web page also lets you define your workflow administrator role and your Workflow web agent. See: Setting Global User Preferences.
- 2. Map Oracle Workflow's directory service to the users and roles currently defined in your organization's directory repository by constructing views based on those database tables. The Notification System uses these views to send notifications to the performers specified in your activities. Your roles can be either individual users or a group of users. Oracle Workflow provides example directory services views that you can modify and reload. See: Setting Up an Oracle Workflow Directory Service.
- 3. Create a view called WF_LANGUAGES that identifies the languages defined in your Oracle database server installation. Oracle Workflow uses this view to create in its translation tables, a row that maps to a row found in its non-translated base table for each installed language. See: Creating the WF_LANGUAGES View.
- 5. Set up background Workflow Engines to control the load and throughput of the primary Workflow Engine on your system. You can specify the cost threshold level of your primary and background engines to determine the activities an engine processes and the activities an engine defers. See: Setting Up Background Workflow Engines.
