Subworkflows Returning to Deployment Management Workflows

Execution workflow steps can be configured to automatically return from a subworkflow to its parent Deployment Management workflow.

For a request to transition back to the parent workflow, the subworkflow must contain a return step. The transitions leading into the return step must match the validation established for the subworkflow step. You must verify that the validation defined for the subworkflow step is synchronized with the transitions entering the return step.

Deployment Management includes the Return from Subworkflow execution workflow step source, which performs this task. Use this step source unless it does not meet the required specifications, such as validation or processing type.

To create the execution step source, make a copy of the execution workflow step source Return from Subworkflow and change the field values, as defined in Table 4-9. Execution window values for returning from subworkflows.
