Workflow templates are used for quick and efficient workflow setup as per target objectives. Creating a template-based workflow not only updates the workflow layout, but also its individual parameters.
Workflow template is a sequence of steps (actions) from start to finish, executed in succession. Arranged in a required sequence, such steps (actions) ensure the desired result.
Creating a template
Workflow design sequence consists of two stages:
- first - indicating
main template parameters
To enter parameter settings, click Template parameters in visual editor.
- second - designing the template for running workflow.
First stage overview. Workflow template parameter setup is divided into several tabs specifying start parameters and workflow settings.
Variables are used for temporary data storage, required for executed process. Variable parameters are stored while workflow is in progress. Upon completion
they are all erased
That's why, when a user-added variable must be saved (for example: a file), use Edit option. This option saves the variable value into preliminarily created additional element field of corresponding type (e. x., file).
Access tab indicates initial level of access permissions which are set for element upon launch. The access level is
both directly and via variables.
Specifics for access permissions assignment in the system
When element uses
Simple access settings mode for iblock when Extended permission management is disabled and section User Group Permissions lists all available user groups.
(legacy) access version, they are set from external sources (access settings to iblocks/lists and etc.). The only variant is assigning access permissions externally from workflow. In this case, use Access tab or Set Permission actions to change permissions during process execution.
extended access permissions
Extended permissions allows configuring AP to the complete iblock as well as to separate sections and elements.
, you can add new access permissions to element remaining even after process is executed. You cannot re-define access permissions that were setup externally, inside the workflow.
