Example of a Workflow Policy Action: Creating a Database Operation Action

Two kinds of database operations are possible in Workflow Policies—insert and update. Insert allows a record to be inserted into a table in the Siebel database. The update database operation allows one or more columns in an existing record to be changed.

In the following example, a database update occurs when you use Workflow Policies to update the value of the Priority field to Very High if the Severity is Critical.
