    EBS work flow

    649606
      Hi Hussein,

      EBS R12

      Is WorkFlow a task for Sysadmin(AppsDba) or for Functional People.
      My boss said its more of Sysadmin that's why she wants me to study it.
      Can you give me Metalink Notes about WF? Is it installed separately?
      I am just confused about it....I see workflow installed on windows client and also workflow inside EBS R12.
      Are they related or the same thing?


      Thanks

          Hi,

          For both, it should be maintained by the technical person and when customization comes are needed, functional people (and developers) should be involved.

          Workflow comes bundled with Oracle Apps 11i/R12, for what you have on client it is a Workflow Builder.

            Thanks hussein :) so u mean I can learn it too? Do I need to study WF builder on windows too?
            Is it pre-setup inside the EBS? or I need to set it up.

              Hi,

              This is something you have to decide.

              All workflow documentation links are included in the documents referenced above.

              Regards,
              Hussein

                Workflow Builder on windows is for developers ... Workflow Administration should be joint between System Administrator (notifications/monitoring errors/purging etc) and Functional (e.g. AP team for Payables Invoice Approvals, PO team for Requisition / Purchase Order Approvals, Finance team for account generator workflows etc).

                  Is there any HR relation with workflow? from functional perspective.
