Configuring the next action for an automated task failure

As a case business analyst, you can configure the action that occurs when an automated task fails in a case. The two options for the action are to let the next task to begin irrespective of whether the earlier task has failed, or to not allow the process to proceed with the next task.

You can configure the action at a global level for all companies in your setup or for specific companies. The value that is set for a company overrides the value that is configured at the global level. You can also configure the action at a case template level. The value that is configured at the case template level overrides the value that is set at the global or company level.

  1. Log in to BMC Helix Business Workflows.
  2. Click Application Settings .
    The Settings page opens in a new browser tab.
