About Deploying Workflow Processes
In this release, workflow design and workflow deployment occur separately. After you have designed a workflow process in the Process Designer within Siebel Tools, you deploy the workflow process from within the run-time client application by activating it.
Figure 4 shows the deployment architecture of Siebel Business Process Designer. Siebel Tools is connected to the server data source. The run-time client application is also connected to the server data source. The steps you and the Siebel Business Process Designer take are summarized as follows:
- You click the Deploy button in Siebel Tools, and the workflow process is marked as Completed in the repository.
- You log in to the run-time client and from the application-level menu, choose Navigate > Site Map > Administration - Business Process > Workflow Deployment. This is the staging environment. You activate the workflow process.
- The workflow process definition is read from the repository and Siebel Business Process Designer writes the definition to the run-time environment as XML.
- You deploy the workflow process with its deployment parameters (Replication, Activation Date, Expiration Date, and Monitoring Level).
