Calling one process from another process

Version:

You can add a subprocess to a process in a stage to call an existing flow in your application. By using subprocesses, you can compartmentalize functionality and simplify the presentation of a process in a case type.

By default, subprocesses run in the context of the current case. You can change the context if your subprocess needs to update a specific case or class.

  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. Hover over a process in a stage, and then click + Step > More > Processes to display a list of flows.

  4. Click the name of a flow, and then review the flow description.

  5. Click Select.

  6. If the flow accepts parameters, pass values for those parameters by entering values in the Parameters section of the contextual property panel.

  7. Click Save.

  • Subprocesses

    A subprocess, also called a subflow, is a flow that is called by another flow. You can create a subprocess by adding a step to a process in the life cycle of a case or by adding specific shapes to a flow diagram. Subprocesses modularize the events in the life cycle of a case.
