About Wait Tool
When designing the process flow (Collection of elements that graphically implement the behavior of a process. You can have flow control elements (Start, Decision, ..., End), activity elements, and you can invoke other processes. Elements in an process flow are linked through Connectors.) of your process (Implements a business process of your organization. A process behavior is defined by its process flow. A process can handle input and output parameters.), you can put your process flow execution on hold. This behavior is implemented through the Wait process activity which you can drag onto your canvas from the Process Flow Toolbox.
The Wait process activity allows you to put your process flow execution on hold until one of the following events occurs:
A timeout: a specified timeout date is reached;
An entity action: when an Entity Action that creates or updates an entity is executed and it matches the conditions to close the wait activity.
A Wait process activity can have input parameters, output parameters, and callback actions.
Setting Conditions for the Entity Action
Once you select an Entity Action for the On Close property, a list of entity attributes is displayed for you to set the condition for which the wait is closed (end its execution). The listed attributes are the primary key and reference attributes.
Using Wait Activity References
Service Studio provides you with mechanisms to access Wait process activities among eSpaces. You can expose your Wait process activities to other eSpaces or use the Wait process activities defined in another eSpace.
