Setting Up Your Workflow Process to Run Periodically

One way to configure your Workflow Process to run on a periodic basis is to set up a Repeating Component Request that starts your Workflow Process at specific time intervals.

To set up periodic workflow processes

  1. Navigate to Server Component Requests > Repeating Component Requests.
  2. Create a new Server Component Request.
    1. Enter Workflow Process Manager in the Component/Job field.
    2. Enter your desired Repeat Interval and Repeat Unit in the detail applet. For example, a Repeat Unit of Weeks and a Repeat Interval of 1 would run your Workflow Process on a weekly basis.
  3. In the Component Request Parameters view, create a new parameter.
    1. In the Name field, select Workflow Process Name, and in the Value field, enter the name of the Workflow Process you wish to run periodically.
  4. Click the Submit Repeating Job button in the Repeating Component Request view.


To check the status of your Repeating Component Request, or to see if any errors occurred while the Component Request was running, navigate to Server Component Requests > My Repeating Component Requests Detail. The My Repeating Component Requests Detail view within this screen shows the status of a given Component Request. If any errors have occurred during execution of the Component Request, you can get more detailed information about the error in the WfProcMgr log file in the Siebel/log directory.
