Designing Processes

Designing Processes

When you use Process Designer to integrate applications, you can:
  • Build a process from a variety of step types, including data decision, subprocess, parallel path, receive, and wait.
  • Automatically link steps in a process as you select data and define actions, bindings, and other process properties.
  • Test your process and necessary connections during process design.
  • Publish the process so it is automatically deployed and available to invoke as a REST/XML or JSON service.
For example, you might define a process to streamline Salesforce order processing as follows:
  • Invoke services to obtain shipping information.
  • Lookup current pricing from an inventory database that resides on-premises.
  • Submit order details to SAP.
