The following describe the fields in the Publishing tab.
General options are as follows:
Enter the namespace of a project. This option is a unique text identifier used to differentiate your project from others. This namespace also serves to identify the components that are involved in your project.
Enter the URL of your organization's home page. This URL is viewable and is useful in streamlining technical support or feedback.
Primary service options are as follows:
Enter a name for your web service, if wanted. The web service is launched as [servicename].aspx on the Workflow Server. Users then connect to your .ASPX file to use the functions of your web service.
To operate your projects after they are deployed as web services, users must invoke methods. The primary method that acts to execute your primary model must be given a name, so users can identify it. Enter into this box the name you want to give your primary method. The default is Execute, which indicates that the functions of your project should execute.
Service Return Class Name
Data that are returned from your web service is placed in a special class, so it may be handled easily by users. Classes are bundles of the data that are organized in a particular way. The class that is used to return data from your web service must be given a name. Enter a name for your return class in this box.
You can select one of the following authentication types:
The Business Time Span Config options are as follows:
Business Time Span Config
Click the ... symbol to override the business hours for your project. The Time Span settings that occur in components take precedence over the project's Time Span settings. Time Span settings that occur in this project take precedence over global Time Span settings.
Starts when a user makes a request (for example, through a Smart task in Helpdesk Solution or a resource Item Action).
The Workflow Server monitors an event and when that event happens, the workflow runs. For example, when an email appears in a mailbox, a particular workflow runs.
Starts with a dialog workflow form that requires user input (for example, salary advance requests or vacation requests). When a Form Start workflow starts, the workflow is processed until it gets to a Dialog Workflow component. The first workflow component you have must be a Dialog Workflow component.
These settings are for how you want web forms in Dialog workflow components to end. These are default project level settings. Component level settings take precedence over these.
Use Default End Page
Select to show the Workflow Designer end page (this page states that the process has ended when a user clicks out of the web form).
Redirect To Page At End
Enter the URL redirect for the end page.
Redirect To Page At End Parameter
Enter the URL parameter redirect for the end page.
Center Forms On Page
Select to center all web forms on the page.
Select the default theme you want to use for all web forms.
Form Dialog Type
Select the form dialog type you want to use for all web forms.
These settings appear when Auto Start is selected in the Workflow Type section.
Start With Primary Model
Select if you want this project to auto start with the primary model instead of another model.
Run Auto Start Until Does Not Start
Select if you want to keep running the Auto Start component until it no longer has data to process.
For example, suppose the Auto Start component monitors a database and processes a row at a time. If the auto start schedule is set to monitor the component daily and there are 500 new rows in the database, if this check box is selected, auto start continues to run until there are no longer any rows to process. Auto Start then waits until the next scheduled time to run.
If, in the previous example, this check box is not selected, only one row is processed each time Auto Start runs according to the schedule.
Click the ... symbol, to run the schedule for the Auto Start component.
Data To Expose
Properties To Expose
Lets you add project data to be exposed externally. This option lets you provide methods on your workflow service that lets users inspect or set your properties.
Workflow Runtime Settings
Allow External Workflow Tracking IDs
Select to provide an external tracking ID for the process. If this option is selected, when a request is made to start the workflow, a process tracking ID needs to be provided. The tracking ID that is provided must be unique.
Allow Workflow Abortions
Select to let administrators stop an unfinished task in a workflow.
Data Cleanup Policy
Select the cleanup policy you want for your project. If you select to clean up data, all file system data gets removed on either a model or a project exit.
Generate Hook For Auto Run
Select to allow the Workflow Server to periodically try to run this project. When you publish this project to a Workflow Server, this project registers itself as being able to run automatically. If this option is not selected, the project timeouts and escalations, reminders, and autostarts may not work correctly.
