Workflows for service fulfillment
Catalog uses the workflow designer tool. The workflow designer is a visual tool based on Business Process Model and Notation 2.0 (BPMN) standards. It has elements that can be dragged and dropped on the canvas to create a process.
Service catalog administrators and internal service suppliers can create workflows that send actions to fulfill service requests through connected systems. There is also a generic connector for integrating with any application that enables web service access through REST API calls.

Review the following sections to learn how to design and build basic process workflows.
When you design a workflow, create the process inputs first. You can attach each process input to a process question that can receive its value from a user question or a default value. By using process variables, you can attach a the same workflow to different services, and still provide specific information based on the service.
