Configuring Long-Running Workflow Processes to Wait for User Events
When using user events in your workflow processes, keep in mind that only long-running workflows can wait for user events. All other types of workflows cannot wait for user events, though they can generate user events. Long-running workflows should be configured with user events only, not run-time events.
To configure a long-running workflow definition to wait for a user event
- Select the workflow process that you are setting to wait for the user event.
- Set one of the process properties of the workflow as the correlator by checking its Correlator flag.
- On the branch of the step that handles the event (a Start step or a Wait step), enter parameters to complete the following fields:
NOTE: User events are not queued. If no recipient is waiting to accept the user event with the specified correlator, the event is discarded.
