Add a Scenario to a Business Process

The Business Process (Scenarios) page allows a Designer to assign scenarios to a business process.

Scenarios and business processes are added to a category, and then scenarios are added to business processes. Scenarios are added to business processes to group related scenarios used to create, change or extend an object. A scenario must be added to a category before it can be added to a business process. Refer to Add a Scenario and Add a Business Process for more information.

A scenario from a different category than the business process’s parent category can be added as long as it is not assigned the lowest priority in the business process. It also cannot be a dependent of any other scenarios in its parent category. Refer to Allow a Scenario to be used in other Categories for more information.

One or more different scenarios can be added to a business process. A particular scenario can only be added to a business process once.

NOTE: For new requests that are automatically created as part of a multi-scenario business process, the Content Request page OnValidate event is automatically executed. The Cransoft UserID 'process' must have access to the Content Request page in order to execute the OnValidate event.

To add a scenario to a business process, you must configure security to include the position for the business process. Refer to Configure Business Processes in a Position for more information.
