I've been pouring over CA API documentation, programming guides, and code samples. Yet I've not found a clear cut answer if it is possible to initiate a workflow outside of WorkPoint designer in IdM. Is this possible and what options are available?
If you are ussing IDM 12.6 you can create an admin task and mark it as webservice enabled. Then you can create a policy express to call this task as a soap webservice call (using TEWS6 functionality). Then you asing this policy to execute on primary (entry of user record) completition task.
When first task is compleated the policy kicks off the secondone by webservice. Yuo can even send parameters to this task, if you want.
Can you please give some more information of what you are trying to do?
Would like to trigger a WF outside of IDM?
Basically, we're needing to submit an admin task for a specific user upon entry of a user record into the system via the bulk loader. So when a new user is entered some code is executed to kick off a different admin task. It's figuring out how to submit an admin task from code that has us stumped.
OK so you're talking about business workflow and not approval workflow, am I right?
In this case it would be a business workflow, but it could be an approval workflow for another process in the future.
This is exactly what we were looking for. Thank you!
