Creating a module and a workflow

When you use the BMC Atrium Orchestrator Development Studio application to create a workflow, you are creating a module and then a workflow within that module. All the other activities for the workflow are created and configured within the workflow.

To create a module

  1. On the BMC Atrium Orchestrator Development Studio Launch Pad, click Designer.
  2. In the Project Navigator tree, right-click the name of the grid and select Create New Module.

  3. In the New Module dialog box, select Projects from the Module Type list.
  4. Type Samples in the Name field, and then click OK.

The product creates a new module, Samples, and lists it under the grid in the Project Navigator, as shown in the following figure.

  2. In the Create New Process dialog box, type List directory in the Process Name field, ensure that the Expose Process options In Schedules and In Rules are selected, and then click OK.

The following figure shows the Create New Process dialog box.
