Milestone Step

Milestone Step

The
Milestone
step lets you specify one of two actions when the process ends.
You choices are:
Milestone: Send Synchronous Response
Sends a synchronous reply to original request. This reply has all of the output fields defined in the
Process Properties
dialog. If a synchronous reply was already sent, no action occurs. This is not an error as it allows background and batch work to occur. You can if you like have additional steps after a milestone. This is used to send a synchronous message, and then continue executing.
If you insert an
Milestone
step into a Parallel Paths step, the Ending Type must be set to Milestone.
End of Process
No further action occurs when the process ends.
