Start step is the first step of any workflow definition. It starts the execution of the process.


  • variables - Manage Variables – define variables for the workflow definition
  • globals - Manage Globals – define globals for the workflow definition
  • businessObjects - Manage Business object – define and manage business objects

  • None



Let’s build and execute the startDef example.          

  • Create a new definition called “startDef
  • Select the definition and click the “design” button
  • Drag the above controls from the toolbox
  • Connect the dots between the start and the rest as above step
  • Save the workflow definition, create a workflow instance and execute.
