The process properties uniquely define a process within a module. Properties include how the process is exposed, selecting a custom icon, and setting keywords. The information in the process properties is used when searching on processes, when using processes in rules or schedules, and when exporting modules.
When you create a new process in the Development Studio application, the process properties window is displayed automatically. To view the properties for existing processes you can double-click on the process canvas when the process is displayed, or with the process displayed, right-click on the process canvas and select process properties from the list.
(required) Specifies the name of the process. The name must be unique within the process directory. Process names are not case sensitive; Process1 and process1 are considered to be duplicates.
Specifies the process ID generated by Development Studio
Specifies the icon to use for the process. If you do not select a customized icon, the default icon is used.
Check box that indicates whether a process is exposed
Specifies the name of the person who created the process.
Specifies the grouping for the process.
Indicates the date and time when the process was changed. This is a system generated date.
Last Modified By
Specifies the name of the person who last modified the process.
Process Timeout (ms)
Specifies the length of time (in milliseconds) this process is allowed to run before the compensation is called due to a timeout event.
Specifies the state of the process.
Specifies the peer on which the process should run.
This setting is ignored.
Specifies the name of the peer. This field is required when you select 'peer' in the peer location option. The peer name must match a peer on the grid on which the module is activated.
This setting is ignored.
Indicates the version of the process. This is a value you enter and maintain.
Specifies whether to record process metrics when the process executes. When set to true, this option causes standard process metrics to be recorded each time this process executes on a grid, provided the grid and database are properly configured. All process metrics written to the metric table have a category of foundation. For more information about configuring the grid and database for metrics, see Managing metrics and audit records.
Specifies the systems that support the process. This is a value you enter and maintain.
Specifies specific words to use for a search
Specifies the description of the process. This can be a helpful reference to provide a summary of the process function.
Specifies whether custom logging is enabled on this workflow. This field is unselected by default.
|Log File Name|
Specifies the custom log file name for log entries. If Enable Logging is selected, this field has a default value created using the values in the Process Name and Process ID values.
The log file is created in the AO_HOME/tomcat/logs directory for the CDP, HA-CDP, or AP. In Development Studio, the log file is created in the AO_HOME/logs directory.
A process must be a root job to use a custom log file. Even if you enable logging and specify a log file name for a sub-process (call-process) in a parent process (root job), the log file will not be created.
