For More Information

Step 1: Use the wizard to create the provisioning request definition

Provide a name for the provisioning request and define its basic characteristics. Then, specify whether you want to use a template to create the request.

Provisioning request definitions are stored locally in the Provisioning\AppConfig\ RequestDefs directory within your workspace.

See Section 5.0, Creating a Provisioning Request Definition.

Step 2: Create the forms

Create the initial request and approval forms for the workflow. By creating the forms first, you can ensure that the user interface is correct before proceeding to the implementation details. In addition, you can greatly simplify the process of mapping the form fields to the application data.

See Section 6.0, Creating Forms for a Provisioning Request Definition.

Step 3: Create the workflow diagram

Add the activities to the workflow diagram and connect them with flow paths.

See Section 7.0, Creating the Workflow for a Provisioning Request Definition

Step 4: Configure the activities and flow paths

Specify the properties, data item mappings, and e-mail notification settings for the activities. Then, define the semantics for the flow paths.

See Section 8.0, Workflow Activity Reference
