About Deploying Workflow Processes

In this release, workflow design and workflow deployment occur separately. After you have designed a workflow process in the Process Designer within Siebel Tools, you deploy the workflow process from within the run-time client application by activating it.

Figure 4 shows the deployment architecture of Siebel Business Process Designer. Siebel Tools is connected to the server data source. The run-time client application is also connected to the server data source. The steps you and the Siebel Business Process Designer take are summarized as follows:

  1. You click the Deploy button in Siebel Tools, and the workflow process is marked as Completed in the repository.
  2. You log in to the run-time client and from the application-level menu, choose Navigate > Site Map > Administration - Business Process > Workflow Deployment. This is the staging environment. You activate the workflow process.
  3. The workflow process definition is read from the repository and Siebel Business Process Designer writes the definition to the run-time environment as XML.
  4. You deploy the workflow process with its deployment parameters (Replication, Activation Date, Expiration Date, and Monitoring Level).
