Adding a parallel process to a stage


Only available versions of this content are shown in the dropdown

Support your business process events that do not require a run-time order by adding a parallel process to a stage.

For example, if your business goal is to review a job application, you can create a parallel process named Background check that you can conduct outside of the main process.
  1. In the navigation pane of App Studio, click Case types, and then click the case type that you want to open.

  2. On the Workflow tab, click Life cycle.

  3. In the Case life cycle section, hover over a stage, and then add a process:

    • To add a new process, click More Add parallel process New process .
    • To add a new multistep form, click More Add parallel process New multistep form .
    • to reuse an existing process, click More Add parallel process , and then select the process in the list.
  4. In the text field, replace the default process label with a descriptive name.

  5. Click Save.

  6. Optional:

    To prevent the process from running each time that a case reenters the stage, configure the settings:

At run time, the process starts when a case enters the stage.
Add meaningful tasks to your parallel process by adding steps. For more information, see Adding a step to a process.

  • Conditionally starting a process

    Create applications that flexibly adjust to dynamically changing scenarios by configuring conditions to start specific sets of actions. When processes in your case type start under specified conditions, you save time and resources because you can create one case type that is relevant in various situations, instead of providing and maintaining multiple case types.
