To define a business process and track the progress of items through the business process:

  1. Identify the object of the business process (a profile, order, or other type of repository item).

  2. Create and configure a BusinessProcessConfiguration component to define the business process. See Creating a BusinessProcessConfiguration Component.

  3. Add the BusinessProcessConfiguration component to the businessProcessConfigurations property of the BusinessProcessManager. See Configuring the BusinessProcessManager Component.

  4. Set up a process for adding business process stage markers to your business process object. You can do this using scenarios, servlet beans in JSPs, or directly through the API. See Marking Business Process Stages.

  5. Create a scenario recorder to record business process stage reached events, together with reports derived from the dataset. SeeReporting on Business Processes.
