General Properties

General Properties

You can specify the following General properties for
processes
:
Property
Description
Name
Required. A descriptive name to identify the process in Process Designer and the name that appears when it is available for use in other objects such as subprocess steps.
  • Process names cannot begin with a number. If you enter a number as the first character, Process Designer adds an underscore to the name. For example, "123" becomes "_123".
  • To change the name of a published process, you must first unpublish the process. Then, change the name and republish the process.
Override API Name
Optional. Overrides the API name that is auto generated when you publish the process with a name that you specify. When you select this option, the
API Name
field becomes available.
API Name
Required if you select the
Override API Name
option.
A unique API name to override the auto-generated API name for the process. The API name that you specify in this field is used in the generated service URLs.
The API name can contain only alphanumeric characters, underscores (_), and hyphens (-), and must not exceed 80 characters.
To change the API name of a published process, you must first unpublish the process. Then, change the API name and republish the process.
If you override the API name and import the process, the imported process uses the API name that you specified. However, if there is an existing process with the same API name that you specified, Application Integration uses an auto-generated API name for the imported process to avoid duplication. Application Integration also disables the
Override API Name
field. Similarly, when you copy a process, Application Integration uses an auto-generated API name for the copied process to avoid duplication and also disables the
Override API Name
field.
If you override the API name and move the process to a different location, Application Integration retains the API name that you specified.
Location
Optional. The location of the project or folder you want the process to reside in. To select a location for the process, browse to the appropriate project or folder, or use the default location.
Description
Optional. A description of the process.
