Assigning Name-Value Pairs in a Business Process Model

Assigning name-value pairs to business processes and documents enables you to easily search for and monitor the business process and related documents. Name-value pairs, which are called correlations in Sterling B2B Integrator, enable a business process to identify corresponding elements (or nodes) and their positions in both the input and output documents.

You can use any of the following methods to assign name-value pairs:

  • Applying the provided name-value pairs provided in the GPM to a service
  • Creating your own unique name-value pairs for a service
  • Implementing the Correlation service to enable Sterling B2B Integrator to generate correlations, according to a business process, or according to documents exchanged as a result of a business process that ran.
