Key features and definitions

Workflows > Understanding workflow > Key features and definitions

This section summarizes some important concepts that apply to designing and implementing workflows in Active Roles.

Workflow

Workflow

A workflow is a model describing a process that consists of steps or activities. Workflows describe the order of execution and relationships between activities required to perform particular operations. In Active Roles, workflows provide a way to customize operations of provisioning and overall administration of directory data. Thus, workflows can be used to add approvals to user provisioning processes or integrate user provisioning processes with external systems.

Workflow definition

Workflow definition is a representation of the workflow structure. The definition of a workflow is stored as a single object in the Active Roles configuration data store, and can be structured as an XML document defining the workflow start conditions, the activities, the parameters for the activities, and the order in which the activities should run.

Workflow start conditions

The workflow settings that determine which operations cause the workflow to start are referred to as the workflow start conditions. For example, a workflow could be configured so that any request to create a user account in a specific container starts the workflow.
