Defining an Application Route creates an association between key values in your application data and your Business Processes.
These steps take place in the Application Route editor, which has these sections: Priority, Application Matching, and Process Binding.
- Specify the Priority Level.
For each Business Document (Invoice, Purchase Order, etc.) within the data, you may specify one or more Application Routes. Specifying more than one Route for a document allows you to execute multiple Business Processes for a single document. The Priority Level indicator directs the order in which the Business Processes are performed.
- Under the Application Matching section, click in the Parent field to assign a parent Application Interface or Application Route.
If you select an Application Interface, a list of key application fields will appear in the Name/Value table.
If you select Application Route, the Names and Values will be inherited from the selected Route.
- For each Name in the Name/Value table, enter the key information.
You can enter values for as many Names as you want, but are not required to enter Values for every Name.
- Under the Process Binding section, click the Add button to associate a Business Process with the Application Route.
- Click the Click to select Business Process... field to select the Business Process.
Only Business Processes that implement the Application Route Template will appear in the list of eligible Application Route Business Processes.
- On the Properties view, review the Fields sub-tab. In order to function properly, the Business Process selected in the previous step may require parameters to be passed to it. Review the list of parameters and supply the required values by clicking on the Value column.
