|Oracle Workflow API Reference|
Part Number B10286-02
If a recipient transfers the ownership of a notification to another role, the Notification web page calls the Notification System's Transfer( )
Note: Recipients who view notifications from an e-mail application cannot transfer notifications. To transfer a notification, the recipient must use the Notifications web page.
The Transfer( ) API validates the role, then calls a notification callback function to execute the notification activity's post-notification function (if it has one) in TRANSFER mode. As an example, the post-notification function may verify whether the role that the notification is being transferred to has appropriate authority. If it doesn't, the post-notification function may return an error and prevent the Transfer operation from proceeding. See: Post-notification Functions.
Transfer( ) then assigns ownership of the notification to the new role, passing along any appended comments. Note that a transfer is also recorded in the comments of the notification.
