WorkPoint Process Components

The workflow process contains the following nodes and transitions:

Start

Every workflow process begins with this node.

Stop

Every workflow process ends with this node.

Manual activity

A manual activity requires the approval or rejection of a CA IdentityMinder task by a participant, and must have the same name as a CA IdentityMinder workflow approval task.

A workflow process that controls a CA IdentityMinder task must include at least one manual activity requesting approval for that task.

Automated activity

An automated activity is assigned one of two scripts:

In general, the Notify IM Approve script is activated if all manual activities are approved, and the Notify IM Reject script is activated if any manual activity is rejected.

Unconditional transition

An unconditional transition is a path from one node in the workflow process to another, and is not associated with a condition script.

Conditional transition

A conditional transition represents an alternative path from one node in the workflow process to another, and is associated with a condition script.

A condition script determines whether the transition occurs by evaluating the outcome of the associated activity. If the script returns true, the transition is performed and the process moves to the next indicated node.

It is possible to have two or more condition scripts return true. This allows an activity to be performed in parallel, since each script is associated with a different transition.

Note: You can use custom scripts in conditional transitions. For instructions, see the Programming Guide for Java.
