Changing the context of a subprocess

You can change the scope of a subprocess that you call from a flow. By running a subprocess in the context of a specific class or case, you can use properties, rules, and other functionality in your application that you cannot access from the parent flow.

  1. In the Explorer panel, click Case types, and then click the case type that you want to open.
  2. On the Workflow tab, click Life cycle.
  3. Click the process that contains the subprocess step.
  4. Click Open process.
  5. On the Diagram tab of the Flow form, double-click the Subprocess shape to open the property panel.
  6. Optional: To allow the parent flow to continue processing without waiting for this subprocess to return, select the Spinoff flow check box.
  7. Choose a context for the subprocess.
  8. Click Submit to close the property panel.
  9. Click Save.
