    CBPDocument::StartWorkflow(
    6,
    array("iblock","CIBlockDocument","{=Document:ID}"),
    array("Voters"=>array("user_1")));

which is submitted to the method that creates the business process:

  • The first parameter is the ID of the launched template of the business process (in our example, it is a Two-stage Approval)
  • The second parameter contains parameters of the document for which the business process is being created. Here, the fact that the business process will be available in the administrative part and the variable {=Document:ID} are set.
  • The last, third, parameter is an array of parameters of the business process launched. In our case, this is the user who is the addressee of the document. In our example, it is the website administrator.
