Defining the Command Center Actions

After you define the business object, you define actions for each object. These actions indicate for each object a combination of possible attribute values what action is taken (launch a business service or workflow). The relationship is one-to-many.

This task is part of Process of Configuring the Command Center Action Form.

To define actions for the Command Center applet

  1. Navigate to Administration - Command Center screen > Defined Objects view, and select the Object Definition for which you wish to define actions.
  2. Scroll down to the Action Definition list, create actions and complete the fields as described in the following table.

    Attribute 1 Required

    Check box.

    Indicates whether or not an entry in the Driving Field (Attribute 1) is required for the Command Center to return results.

    Attribute 1 Map

    Free text.

    Works in concert with the Expression field of the Object Definition to determine the contents of the Command Center dropdown menus.

    Attribute 2-4

    Free text.

    Value lists for Attributes 2-4.


    Free text. Each entry must be unique, that is, you cannot use the same command for different actions.

    The command line equivalent for the action.

    These commands are restricted to the Business Object with which they are associated.
