Deployment Management includes workflow execution steps that may be used to set up data-dependent rules for the routing of workflow processes. Token execution workflow steps enable a workflow to be routed based on the value of any field within a particular entity. A token execution workflow step references the value of a given token and uses that value as the result of the workflow step. A transition can be made based on the value stored in the product by using tokens in the execution workflow step.
Create a new execution step source with the field values as defined in Table 4-7. Execution window values for evaluating tokens.
For example, IT needs to deploy changes to different servers depending on the type of object being deployed.
Figure 4-1. Transitioning based on a token
IT decides to use an execution workflow step to automatically evaluate the object type and route the package line accordingly. To accomplish this, an execution workflow step source, Evaluate Object Type, is configured with the parameters listed in Table 4-8. Example of execution window values for evaluating tokens.
