Object Types involved in WorkFlow

Posted by Ajith Prabhakar on March 26, 2008


Below is the table with different object types that has some role in workflow (5.3) with its description from Documentum Object Reference Manual

Object Type

Short Description

Detailed Information

dm_workflow

Contains the runtime information about a workflow.

A workflow object contains the runtime information about a workflow.

dm_activity

An activity object defines a workflow activity.

The attributes in an activity object define who performs the activity and the packages and work items generated from the activity.

dm_process

A process object contains the definition of a workflow process.

A process object is created when a user creates a workflow definition in either Workflow Manager or Business Process Manager. There are three inherited attributes that are reserved for internal use for process objects: a_special_app, a_status, and a_application_type.

dmi_workitem

Stores information about a task for a human or automatic performer.

Work items are generated by Content Server from an activity object. Users cannot create work items. Users can modify only the following attributes: a_held_by, a_wq_doc_profile, a_wq_flag, a_wq_name, and a_wq_policy_id.

dmc_workqueue

Represents a work queue for work items generated from a workflow

A work queue object represents a work queue for workflow tasks. The workqueue object type is installed by a script when Content Server is installed. However, work queues (instances of the type) are created and managed using Webtop.

dmc_workqueue_category

Defines a category for a work queue.

A work queue category object represents a category of work queues. The object type has no attributes defined for it. It inherits all its attributes from its supertype, dm_folder. It uses only the object_name, acl_name, and acl_domain attributes. The object_name attribute stores the work queue category name

dmc_workqueue_policy

Defines configuration information for a work queue.

A work queue policy object defines configuration parameters for handling a task in a  workqueue. The parameters control how the items are handled. Each work queue has one associated work queue policy. If a document associated with a task has a defined work queue policy, that policy overrides the work queue’s policy.

dmi_wf_timer

Records the configuration of a timer for a workflow activity.

A wf timer object describes a timer for a workflow activity. The wf timer objects are created automatically when the timer is instantiated.
