The object ID for the process is automatically passed to Siebel Operation steps. Because this automatic passing occurs, you do not need to enter a search specification value unless you are updating child records. For example, if you have a process based on the service request object and you want to update the service request, you do not need to enter a search specification. However, if you want to update activities for the service request, you may want to enter a search specification to query the specific activity that you want to update. Otherwise, the update step updates all activities for the service request.
When performing a query operation for child records, the Siebel Operation Object ID process property field will return the row ID if one record matches, a "*" if multiple records match, and Null/no value if no records match.
NOTE: The Workflow Policy programs and Siebel Operation steps use different object layers to update data. For example, you may have a Workflow Policy that calls a Workflow Policy Program to update a Service Request Record. This method goes through the Data Layer in which State Model does not apply.
