Step 3. Generating Receive Step Sources

To create a receive step using the wf_receive built-in workflow event:

  1. From the Workbench shortcut bar, select Configuration > Workflows.

    The Workflow Workbench opens.

  2. Open a workflow.

    The Workflow window opens and the Workflow Step Sources window opens.

  3. In the Workflow Step Sources window, select the Executions folder, and then click New.

    The Execution window opens.

  4. In the Name field, type a name for the new execution step.

  5. From the Workflow Scope list, select either Packages or Requests, depending on how you plan to apply the workflow.

  6. In the Execution Type list, leave Built-in Workflow Event selected.

  7. From the Workflow Event list, select wf_receive.

  8. Use the Validation auto-complete list to select a validation to use to transition out of this workflow step.

    Note: The validation values that exit the receive workflow step must match the possible validation values used to enter and exit the jump workflow step.

  9. Type all required information and any optional information you want to provide.

  10. Click the Ownership tab.

  11. Select the security groups whose members can edit this execution workflow step.

  12. Click OK.

    The Executions folder in the Workflow Step Sources window now includes the new receive workflow step.

This workflow step can be used in any new or existing workflow within the defined workflow scope. Keep in mind that every receive step must correspond to a jump step in another workflow.
