Executing PL/SQL Functions and Creating Transitions Based on the Results

PL/SQL function execution workflow steps are used when a workflow must be routed based on the results of the PL/SQL function. A PL/SQL function execution workflow step runs a PL/SQL function and returns its results as the result of that workflow step.
