Last published at: May 14th, 2024


Get a business object within the process


  • boProps – business object properties to get the object
  • ttl – Time to live amount
  • ttltype – Time to live type
  • loadOnDemand – Load properties on demand


  • True – step executed successfully
  • False – step failed to execute 


To use this step, we need business objects in FlowWright Business objects configuration.

We must define the configured Business object in Workflow Definition

Actions->Manage Business Objects -> Add


Let’s build and execute the getBusinessObjectDef example.          

  • Create a new definition called “getBusinessObjectDef
  • Select the definition and click the “design” button
  • Drag a getBusinessObject step from the toolbox
  • Connect the dots between the start and getBusinessObject step 

  • Click on the “getBusinessObject” step to configure its properties
  • Configure the following values for the properties as shown on the below graphic
  • Click on parms to the business object then select business object and enter the properties and save.

  • Save the workflow definition, create a workflow instance and execute. Step should get business object for the process.
